The CARE Model

The Victims Empowerment Support Team believes passionately in the CARE Model. It is essential to each Survivor’s recovery that they surround themselves with individuals that believe in and CARE about their recovery. A Survivor’s support circle should include people with characteristics of the CARE MODEL:

Compassionate. People who can help you understand and validate your feelings and LISTEN.

Accessible. Accessible. People who let you know that you are not alone and understand your situation.

Resourceful. People who will help you find resources to help.

Empathetic. People who understand your emotional history.

It is not what happens to us,
it is what we do with what happens to us.

Becoming a victim is not a choice, becoming a Survivor is!
