Capital Area Response Effort (CARE)

About Us

CARE is a Domestic Violence Post Arrest Response Team and the only post-arrest response team for victims/survivors of domestic violence in Lansing, Lansing Township, Meridian Township, East Lansing and on the campus of Michigan State University. A staff member or a team of two volunteers responds to victims at their homes or places of employment, the hospital, or local police department to provide crisis intervention, safety planning, and information about area resources.

The CARE Program is seeking volunteers and interns! Volunteers always go out on calls in pairs, after an assailant has been arrested. Interns go out on calls over the weekend, follow up with survivors over the telephone, and provide survivors with court support.
