CARE provides confidential advocacy, support, and related referrals for LGBTQIA+ students, staff, faculty, and alumni impacted by sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking.
CARE recognizes that there is not one resource or path toward healing that will best serve all members of a community. The LGBTQIA+ community is no different. CARE takes an active role in recognizing the assumptions that can be made on a daily basis regarding one's sexual orientation or gender, and allows for the client to self-identify in all of their identities.
LGBTQIA+ survivors may feel that institutions designed to help them are inaccessible due to past experiences of homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia from police, courts, medical providers, and even campus resources. CARE will honor any survivor’s wishes to not report to systems or offices that feel unsafe. CARE will work with the survivor to create the best path for them and their individual healing.
