The Rape Crisis Center of Coastal Horizons Center is the only stand-alone rape crisis center in Southeastern North Carolina.

Serving New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender Counties, the Rape Crisis Center staff, interns, and volunteers provide free and confidential services to all victims of sexual violence in our community including:

  • 24-hour crisis response to victims via the hotline and in person at hospital emergency rooms.
  • Criminal justice advocacy for sexual assault victims, offering support through law enforcement interviews, meetings with the district attorney’s office, and throughout the duration of any criminal or civil court proceeding.
  • Free individual therapy and weekly support groups for sexual violence survivors who would not otherwise have access to these services due to barriers such as being uninsured or having a high co-pay.
  • Assistance with filing protective orders and Crime Victim's Compensation.

All therapy services are facilitated by licensed clinicians utilizing evidence based treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT).
