How to Help Rape and Abuse Crisis Service

Financial Donations:
Make a financial donation to support our ongoing needs, or in honor of a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion, or make a memorial donation. Donations may be mailed to RACS, Executive Director, Rape & Abuse Crisis Service, P.O. Box 416, Jefferson City, MO 65102. Questions should be directed to 573.634.8346 ext 6.

If your contribution is $100 or more a 50% Missouri State tax credit is available. More information can be found at the Dept. of Social Services website.
Special Needs Network
Join our network of supporters who receive our most urgent in-kind needs on a regular basis! There are times when our stock of particular supplies run perilously low, especially when the shelter is full. If you'd like to receive information on these special needs, please email us at
Cell Phone Donations:
We do accept donations of cell phones and accessories. Some can be used by our clients for emergency 911 calls, while others will be sent off for recycling by a special program set up to benefit domestic violence shelters like RACS.
We have volunteers who assist us in many ways, including working with donations, getting groceries for the shelter, providing childcare for Parenting Group and Domestic Violence Support Group, and organizing collections of needed supplies for the shelter. If you're interested in becoming a volunteer at RACS, call us at (573)634-8346, ext. 7 and download our volunteer form HERE.
At RACS, there are certain items that we can almost always use. The items on our Wish List are those that we are in the greatest need of at present. Items marked with an asterisk (*) are really running low right now.
