Project SAFE Resources During COVID-19

During this time of transition and upheaval, we wanted to take a moment to share how Project SAFE is still a resource for you.

The Covid-19 crisis can be particularly impactful for those who have a history of other related or unrelated traumatic experiences, because of the way it has disrupted our personal sense of safety, routine, and made familiar methods of coping and accessing support systems difficult or impossible. In conjunction with the Emmons Wellness Center, Project SAFE has developed this resource guide to assist those coping with trauma amidst Covid-19. 


Fall 2021 Updates

Advocacy

Advocacy services remain available through Project SAFE interim survivor advocate Tirzah Blanche, who is a certified and confidential counselor-advocate. Tirzah is offering both in-person and remote advocacy services. In-person services will resume in the Project SAFE office, located in Lower Stewie Lounge. Visitors to the office must wear masks and respect social distancing and other COVID-19 precaution protocols. Remote services are offered over Zoom and by telephone. For advocacy needs or questions, you may reach Tirzah at survivoradvocate@oxy.edu.

Prevention Education

Project SAFE’s Prevention Education team has returned to campus, and will host in-person prevention programming as well as remote programming. Whether trainings, events, and activities will be remote or in-person will be decided on their individual programming needs and capacities, as well as compliance with COVID-19 precaution protocols. For training requests, please email projectsafe@oxy.edu.  

Peer Support Hours

Project SAFE Student Programming Assistants are holding drop-in support hours for any student seeking peer support around issues of healthy communication, consent, relationship stresses, or with questions about Oxy or off-campus resources. PAs can also answer questions about what the Advocate can do or what Project SAFE does on campus. Don’t hesitate to come by PA drop-in hours in the Library, room 103 on the second floor, or schedule a Zoom appointment.
