Survivor Healing Programs

CARE recognizes that healing is not limited to one modality and values all forms of healing. Their healing programs create transformative and nurturing spaces in which survivors who have experienced trauma can find safety, connection and support.

CARE offers a variety of holistic programs designed to provide restorative experiences that facilitate opportunities for self-reconnection, while addressing the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual effects of traumatic experiences.

CARE Advocates provide affirming, empowering, and confidential support for survivors and bring a non-judgmental, caring approach to exploring all options and resources. CARE Advocates believe that it is always the survivor’s decision to pursue any of the available resources or to report an incident to the police or the University. 

Their state certified Advocates are here to help you navigate your options, provide you with support, connect you with resources on-campus or within the community, and serve as trusted point of contact throughout the whole process.

CARE does not practice appointment limits and understands that each survivor has unique needs. A survivor may choose to come back to CARE at any time. CARE Advocates take time to understand the unique and individual experiences of survivors. Together, CARE Advocates and survivors develop an individual plan for moving forward.
