If you are a survivor of sexual violence, know that what happened was not your fault. You might be feeling overwhelmed right now. It's okay to feel that way. Just remember that we are here to help and that you have the right to decide your next steps. What you’re feeling and what your next steps will be – they are yours to feel and to choose.
As UCR’s certified sexual assault/domestic violence survivor advocates, Naddia and Karla operate within an empowerment model of support, aiming to provide survivors with on- and off-campus resources and supporting whichever path the survivor feels will be most helpful in their recovery. They welcome students, faculty, staff – as well as support individuals – to meet with them in a safe and highly confidential space (Surge 384 & Surge 386).
The CARE Advocates provide the following services:

The choice is yours to seek medical treatment, report sexual assault and/or press formal charges. Our local Sexual Assault Response Teams (SART) can help. Services include:

If possible, try not to bathe/shower, use the restroom, brush teeth, change clothes, comb hair, clean crime scene or move anything the perpetrator might have touched. If you already changed, place the clothing you were wearing at the time of the assault in a paper bag and take it to the SART facility. Do not use plastic.
Remember, you are not alone. CARE Advocates (951-827-6225) can accompany you to the SART facility of your choice.
