The CARE department has transitioned to providing remote/online services. Until further notice we will not be providing in person services due to the shelter in place. Our online services hours are Monday – Thursday 8:30am – 6:00pm and Friday 8:30am – 1:00pm. We can be reached via email at and via phone at 925-318-1070. Please ensure that you have a voicemail set-up in case that we need to leave you a message.

We are continuing to provide counseling services remotely via Zoom or the phone. If you need to schedule a counseling appointment please call 925-318-1070. We also ask that all CARE students continue to check your email daily at 11:00am and again at 4:00pm for any updates.
