WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT INTERPERSONAL VIOLENCE FOR UNDOCUMENTED SURVIVORS?

Barriers to accessing services can look different for survivors who are undocumented. There barriers include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Threats of calling ICE or disclosing their legal status
  • Isolation from support system
  • Fear of deportation
  • Lack of access to resources due to undocumented status

CONFIDENTIALITY

CARE is a confidential service for survivors. What this means is that we are not required to report as per Title IX responsible employee requirements. We are able to provide a safe space to discuss any and all concerns a survivor may have without fear.

HOW WE CAN SUPPORT YOU

CARE understands sexual violence/dating violence usually intersects with other forms of oppression, making it essential that we discuss and plan for all circumstances that may arise because of this. While we know interpersonal violence knows no boundaries, we live in a society that is built on systems of privilege which allow some people to maintain power and control while others are left vulnerable. Healing from trauma is not a one-size-fits-all. We acknowledge that each person may hold many intersecting identities and want to provide a safe environment for all people.

CARE knows that everyone’s experiences are unique and valid and will support you explore your options. We strive to create a space that acknowledges the different experiences and barriers that individual community members face and where survivors feel safe to discuss as much or as little as they choose to.
