ARISE: Advocates for Relationship Intervention, Survivor Support, and Education

Navigating where to get help for you or a friend can feel overwhelming. The ARISE team at Westminster is here to provide you with confidential resources that fit your individual situation surrounding all aspects of interpersonal violence (IPV). We have a confidential system in place to assist you with whatever you may need, including emergency contacts, education and ongoing support. The collection of topics on this website is meant to help those in need, as well as educate anyone who wants to learn about providing support and prevention to our Westminster community.


Getting Help When You Need It

We have a comprehensive list of phone numbers, contacts, addresses and links that will provide you with options for immediate help, or a place to start when you aren’t sure of your next steps. Confidential resources are listed as well as links to more detailed information to help you decide what plan of action is best for you. Contacts and information about ongoing care and coping mechanisms is also included here.
