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

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.
