 Beginning Fall 2019, the CARE helpline will no longer be in service so we can focus our efforts on educating our community on what sexual violence looks like and how to prevent it.

24/7 helpline 540-568-6411       

Campus Assault ResponsE (CARE) is a student-run organization that addresses the issue of sexual violence on campus. The CARE helpline assists students who have been directly or indirectly affected by sexual violence and need support or information.

The number for the 24/7 helpline is 540-568-6411 when JMU is in session. The helpline operates on a voicemail system; the caller leaves a message on the voicemail system, and then the voicemail system notifies a CARE member that is on-call. A CARE member responds within 15 minutes of receiving the notification to offer support and helpful information to the caller.

The organization has general members, as well as helpline volunteers who receive training regarding support and response. General members may attend the weekly meetings and volunteer for programs and events that CARE is planning; however, trained volunteers run the 24/7 helpline. It is not required for CARE members undergo training; all students are welcome to attend meetings and get involved.

Visit CARE through Be Involved to learn about meetings and to get involved.
