What is CAT?  

CAT stands for Campus Advocate Team. The North Coast Rape Crisis Team is currently partnered with Cal Poly Humboldt (Formerly Humboldt State University) to provide 24/7 access to confidential support. CAT assists students, staff, and faculty who have experienced sexual assault, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, and/or stalking through Title IX investigations and in receiving Title IX accommodations.

What is Title IX?

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. It ensures that university members receive information about their rights, options, and provides accommodations that might be needed if they experience any form of sexual assault, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, and/or stalking during their time at a university.

Are advocates for the North Coast Rape Crisis Team mandated reporters?

NO, services within the agency and calls through the hotline are all 100% confidential. Although, while in the role of Prevention Education, an Educator could become a mandated reporter. If an Educator was on an elementary, middle school, or high school campus, doing prevention education, and learned that a person under the age of 18 was experiencing violence or in danger; they would be mandated to report that.

What areas does the North Coast Rape Crisis Team serve?

The North Coast Rape Crisis Team serves all of Humboldt County and Del Norte County. If someone was needing services and were located outside of our area, we could assist in finding information to their local Rape Crisis or other local resources.
