WeCare Support Groups

WeCare support groups provide a cohesive and safe environment for victims of all identifying genders to talk and receive support from advocates, peers, campus, and community resources. The groups meet weekly. The meetings are for Wilmington College students that identify as a victim/survivor of sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, intimate partner violence, stalking, child abuse, and sexual harassment who want a place to speak with other student survivors. There is no fee for these groups. These confidential groups will allow student survivors to connect, give, and receive support in a safe environment. Students can attend these sessions consecutively or come as their schedule allows. No registration is required. All bodies and identities welcome!

* To RECOGNIZE that non-consensual sex is sexual assault.

* To IDENTIFY situations in which sexual assault may occur.

* To INTERVENE in situations where consent has not or cannot be given.

* To CREATE an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported
