Getting Care/Learning More
We are here to help.
Project S.A.F.E. is able to connect survivors with resources on and off campus and operates within an Empowerment Model of support, aiming to provide survivors with options and supporting whichever paths the survivor feels will be most helpful in her/his recovery. It is the belief of Project S.A.F.E. that survivors are the experts of their own lives and the role of our staff is to offer emotional support and information so survivors can make whatever decisions are right for them.
One of the ways Project S.A.F.E. works to build a safer community at Oxy is through educating students, faculty, and staff and encouraging members of our community to continue to educate themselves and others. Please contact us to set up an educational workshop with Project S.A.F.E. for your organzation and explore the links below.
