We believe you. It wasn’t your fault.

CARE wants survivors on our campus to know that there’s a community of people who care about and support you. We want you to know that there are options and resources to help you begin your healing process.

Whether you want to report, seek counseling, or just want to talk, we’re here for you.

CARE understands that there is no single narrative on what it means to be a survivor, which means that there is no one path to recovery, so it’s important that we as a community offer as many opportunities as possible for survivors to heal and seek justice.

You are more than deserving of any and all help.
