Campus Assault ResponsE (CARE) was established for students by students. The CARE helpline is designed to assist students who have been directly or indirectly affected by sexual assault and who are in need of crisis intervention or information.
The number for the 24/7 helpline is 540-568-6411 when JMU is in session. The helpline operates on a voicemail-pager system, meaning that the caller can leave a message on the voicemail system, and then the voicemail system will page a CARE member that is on call. The CARE member will respond within fifteen minutes of receiving the page to offer support and helpful information to the caller.
