About Us

The Pickens County Advocacy Center, formerly the Rape Crisis Council of Pickens County was established in 1985 to provide trauma informed care and crisis intervention for all sexual assault victims in Pickens County.


The purpose of the Pickens County Advocacy Center is to provide immediate 24-hour response to sexual assault victims and their families through medical, court, and law enforcement escort, educational programs, information and referral, legal advocacy, and support services. PCAC also provides training for medical personnel, social service agencies, and law enforcement on the dynamics of sexual assault and trauma informed care. All services provided by Pickens County Advocacy Center are confidential and at no charge to our survivors and their families.

PCAC does not discriminate in its activities on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, age, religion or religious creed, disability or handicap, sex or gender, gender identity and/or expression (including a transgender identity), sexual orientation, military or veteran status, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected under applicable federal, state or local law. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors and vendors.
