Center for Advocacy, Response and Education Healing Fund

Submitted by Jessica Henault

The Center for Advocacy, Response and Education, or CARE, recognizes the collective grief, pain and trauma individuals are experiencing as a result of the local, state, national and global events that continue unfolding.

CARE reminds K-State staff, faculty and administrators of its CARE Healing Fund service. The healing fund provides K-State individuals funding for mental health services like individual or group therapy for those who experience(d) violence. The healing fund is available for all K-State students, staff and faculty members. Those who receive CARE healing funds have the option of seeking therapy services at the K-State Counseling Center, Family Center, or one of the private practices located in the local Manhattan community that CARE partners with. 

If you know of students who may benefit from meeting with a survivor advocate to learn more about the healing fund, or if you yourself would like more information about the fund, contact CARE at ksucare@k-state.edu. Additionally, if you would like the PDF version of CARE's healing fund flyer to share with others, please contact CARE at their email. 

CARE provides free, voluntary, and confidential support services to any K-State student, staff, faculty, or administrator who experience(d) sexual violence such as rape and sexual assault. CARE also supports K-State members who experience(d) other crimes such as sexual harassment, unwanted touching, stalking, dating violence, or domestic violence. Additionally, CARE provides educational programming such as presentations and other events. Individuals interested in speaking to a survivor advocate or learn more about educational programming options, you may email them.
