Providence College/Day One Advocate
Providence College has a Memorandum of Agreement in place with Day One – The Sexual Assault & Trauma Center for enhanced, PC-specific services to support survivors of sexual assault. Taylor DelTufo serves as the primary contact from Day One for Providence College.
As the Day One Advocate for Providence College, Taylor is available to speak and meet with members of the community who are seeking information and support on a confidential basis. The PC/Day One Advocate can direct members of the community to professional resources of aid, care, and recourse both on- and off-campus. She assures, with student consent, that there are effective, consistent support and follow-up services. Taylor may also serve as an advocate for PC students going through the criminal justice or community standards process.
Taylor graduated with her B.A. in Psychology from the University of Rhode Island in 2019. She began her journey with Day One in 2017 as a volunteer advocate on Rhode Island’s 24-hour Helpline (1-800-494-8100), serving victims of sexual assault and domestic violence throughout the state. She then became Volunteer Coordinator with Day One in August of 2018, and became the Law Enforcement Advocate for the South County police departments in June of 2019. Taylor is passionate about serving survivors in Rhode Island and providing support that is attentive to the needs of the Providence College community as the Advocacy Coordinator.
