In response to the increasing claims, trauma and awareness growing around child sexual assault, ASCIP has developed an array of services and programs to support the efforts of our members in child sexual assault prevention. The CAARE Program (Child Anti-Assault Response & Education) collaborates with districts to provide support, guidance, resources and programs dedicated to eliminating child sexual abuse. One resource of the CAARE Program includes an on-call CAARE Incident Response Team to provide members with quick responses and support in the areas of legal expertise, human resources, public relations and incident recovery. In addition, CAARE provides extensive training options for students and staff, resources for victims and a new campaign designed to send a message of empowerment to students of all grades.
