CARE Healing Fund

The Center for Advocacy, Response, and Education (CARE) recognizes the importance of mental health and well-being of survivors of sexual and interpersonal violence. CARE believes that financial standing of a survivor should not be a hinder to the healing process.

The Victim of Crime Act (VOCA) has sponsored the CARE office with funds to establish a Healing Fund that provides financial assistance to Kansas State students and staff members. Access to the Healing Fund is contingent upon approval of VOCA funding and is subject to change.

The CARE Healing Fund is available to only:

  • Students enrolled in classes
  • Staff and faculty members

Failure to notify CARE of an enrollment status change may result in a complete ban of using the Healing Fund for further therapy/mental health services.

You will receive $600 towards the cost of therapy/mental health services. Funding is paid directly to service providers and is not subject to reimbursement. CARE will not be billed for cancelled or missed sessions. Sessions do not need to be used consecutively.

If you have health insurance and are able to use it without jeopardizing your safety and/or privacy, insurance should be billed first before CARE pays for the session.

You must meet with a CARE advocate in person or remotely prior to accessing the CARE Healing Fund. The letter is only valid if signed by the Director or an advocate. Letters dated before September 31, 2022 (the previous grant year) will not be accepted and CARE will not pay for backdated sessions.
