May 2020 Issue 20
We know lockdowns and quarantines are essential to suppressing COVID-19, but they can trap women with abusive partners. Over the past weeks, as the economic and social pressures and fear have grown, we have seen a horrifying surge in domestic violence . Antonio Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General

Experts caution that the risk of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse is increasing due to shelter-in-place orders.

Yes, COVID-19 has forced most victim service advocates to work remotely. Fortunately, this does not mean that advocates are not providing services. It only means that we are providing services differently. We are STILL here to help... so thank you for your continuous support of our agency and those we serve!

May the month of May be filled with Miracles and New Mercies for each of you!
