Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center Receives Huge Bequest

Posted on Friday, July 26, 2013 4:21pm

A South Coast  organization which helps the survivors of sexual violence has been given a huge bequest to help continue its work.

The Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center received $250,000 from the estate of Susan Trescher, a longtime member of the Santa Barbara legal, and business communities who died in 2012.

She was a leader in women’s rights issues in the community.

The Rape Crisis Center served close to a thousand people in the last year, offering a number of programs, and services ranging from a 24 hour hotline, to training for professionals involved with sexual assault response efforts.
