CARE is committed to the eradication of sexual and gender-based violence through creating and sustaining a safe, healthy, and equitable community for all people. CARE strives to achieve this through provision of comprehensive prevention education, individual support and advocacy, and holistic healing programs for all members of the UCLA community.
CARE has three distinct, but complementary services: Education, Advocacy, and Healing. Combined these three components allow us to address primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of prevention providing a comprehensive approach in service of our mission.
Effective education programming, in addition to addressing root causes of sexual violence, will raise awareness and compassion for survivors within the community.
Strong advocacy services are survivor centered and provide emotional support, but also include an educational component to contextualize incidents of harm and promote healing.
Healing programs offer survivors a multitude of ways to connect with their own healing process, which empowers individuals and increases resilience.
Building compassion, knowledge, and resilience encourages culture change toward a safer, healthier, equitable community.
