Have you been a victim of rape or sexual assault? What do you do
now? Rape is a violent act of forced intercourse. Rapist do not act in
order to satisfy sexual desire. They are motivated by anger
and the hunger for power and control. We have counselors who will
help you through this trauma. You will be counseled,
educated, and empowered to act on this violation so that you can
move forward with your life.
We offer you information and tips on how to prevent rape.
Abusers need counseling too, and this is the place to get it. We
counsel the abuser to identify and help him/her control his/her anger
in ways other than violence.
Batterer's Intervention Program*
The courts make it mandatory for a convicted batterer to enroll in a
counseling program as part of their probation. *This is the
only program that we offer that carries a small fee. If the batterer
does not participate in these classes, they is subject to
violation of his probation and will have to appear before the Judge
again in court and will often be sentenced to time in prison.
Life Skills Training
We will teach you "Life Skills," the basic information you need to
develop the skills for survival, resume writing, employment, self-
esteem building, being assertive, getting motivated, nutrition and
cooking, dressing to impress, becoming a better listener, managing
your finances, and so much more!
Do you or your organization need somebody to present topics on
domestic violence, rape, or other issues? U Care, Inc. is also
dedicated to its mission of educating the community as well. Our staff
and members of our board are glad to present topics at your next function.
We have taken our educational materials to schools, local
colleges, businesses, fire departments, law enforcement agencies,
government agencies, libraries, newspapers, television media, health
departments, hospitals, flea markets; issued fliers, and used every
opportunity we have to educate the public on the various issues of domestic violence.
Board members have been invited to speak at Continuing Medical
Education Meetings, and even the North Carolina Governor's Crime
Commission. Our staff has even met with Military leaders at Fort
Bragg to spread our knowledge on fighting family violence at all levels
in the military.
Our newest avenue of outreach is this web site! We want
everyone to know that violence of any type should not be tolerated
and that there are consequences to be paid for such acts. Let us
speak at your next church, social, civic organization, men's or
women's club, or educational function.
