Merced College

Valley Crisis Center  has collaborated with Merced College to bring a prevention/education program at Merced College. Our Prevention Specialist, Val, is working diligently with community leaders to make sure this new program will be a success.  Val is launching a new program called INSPPIRE (Inviting Students to Promote Prevention, Intervention, and Rape Education) which is encouraging the Merced College Community to become active in preventing and intervening if they see signs of sexual assault or dating/domestic violence.

Valley Crisis Center is pleased to announce that there will now be an advocate available at the Los Banos Campus of Merced College. Our new advocate, Gabriela will be on the LB campus for 16 hours a week providing crisis intervention, counseling and support for violence prevention program, INSPPIRE.


If you would like to be part of our new Merced College program or would like to learn more about our role on campus, feel free to contact our prevention specialist or just send an email to say “Hello!”
