Albany County Rape Crisis Center

Albany County Rape Crisis Center


112 State St. | (518) 447-7716

The Albany County Crime Victim and Sexual Violence Center began in 1974 as AWARE, Albany Women Against Rape. In 1975, the agency became a department of Albany County and was renamed Albany County Rape Crisis Center. The goal of the agency was to provide crisis counseling to rape victims over a 24-hour hotline, and to provide advocacy and support for victims in area emergency departments and police stations. In addition, efforts were made to publicize the frequency and effect of rape through public presentations.  All services are offered free of charge.
