The crisis line provides 24-hour service to victims/survivors of sexual violence, supporters, family and friends of survivors. In addition to providing crisis intervention on the line, volunteers also provide accompaniments to police stations and to the Sexual Assault Partner Abuse Care Program at the Civic Campus of the Ottawa Hospital.
The ORCC requests that volunteers commit for one year and volunteer on the crisis line for 21 hours per month. Volunteers work evenings and weekends and answer the Crisis Line from home through a call transfer system. During their shifts, they must be the only ones answering the phone.

Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre /
The Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre (ORCC) first opened its doors on December 15, 1974. Originally located in a small apartment on Somerset Street West, it was the third such Centre in Canada (others had been established in Toronto and Vancouver). Initially, the Centre was comprised of three volunteers offering crisis line services to victims of sexual assault.
The ORCC has developed over the past thirty-five years into a community leader in the field of sexual violence. In 1976 the staff at the ORCC included four full-time staff members and 40 volunteers. Today the staff at the ORCC consists of seven full-time and four part-time staff members. There are over one hundred volunteers that work on the 24 - hour crisis line, and provide public education activities. The staff and volunteers also act as liaisons with the police, hospitals, lawyers and other social service resources.
The Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre is a proactive, anti-racist, feminist organization working to end all forms of sexual violence. We counsel and support women, educate for change and work to create a safe and equitable community.
