COVID-19 Information

We hope that you and your families are staying safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. CARE recognizes the additional hurdles created for survivors by the COVID-19 health crisis, in particular survivors who may be exposed to an increased risk of domestic violence. The need for resources and support has never been greater for our community.

CARE remains available and operational to provide support services to all UC Davis students, staff, and faculty. However, to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we are providing services remotely. To speak with a confidential advocate, please email us at ucdcare@ucdavis.edu.

You can also reach us by calling (530) 752-3299. During business hours (Monday-Friday between 8-5 pm) please leave a message and the advocate will call you back promptly. Should you call after hours, you are welcome to leave a message that will be returned the next business day or select the option to be connected with a confidential counselor.

Stalking

Stalking is unwanted and repeated conduct directed at a single person that would cause a reasonable person fear.


Examples of stalking behaviors may include:

  • Sending an individual unwanted messages or gifts

  • Following someone or watching them

  • Showing up uninvited to one’s work, home, or class

  • Damaging personal property

  • Threatening to harm someone or their family, friends, or pets

  • Monitoring someone’s social media activity

  • Using GPS to track someone’s movements

Cyberstalking: the use of technology to stalk or harass an individual, group, or organization.

It may include false accusations, defamation, and slander. It may also include monitoring, identity theft, threats, vandalism, solicitation for sex, or gathering information that may be used to threaten, embarrass or harass.
