SHASTA CARES- Campus Advocacy, Resources and Education for Safety
Shasta CARES is a collaboration dedicated to uprooting interpersonal violence in our diverse community.
Through the Shasta CARES program, campus and community partners meet on a monthly basis for the Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT). The CCRT on the Main Campus is currently comprised of members from Student Services, Campus Safety, One SAFE Place, and Redding Police Department.
The CCRT on the Tehama Campus is comprised of members from Extended Education, Campus Safety, Rape Crisis Intervention and PreventionEmpower Tehama (formerly Alternatives to Violence), Red Bluff Police Department and Tehama County Sheriff. 

Each team works together to create a trauma-informed response and develop culturally competent violence prevention programs. Shasta CARES provides primary prevention programming and events to educate the campus on realities of sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The events and workshops promote healthy behaviors, equity, safety and accountability.
