Hello friend of RESOLVE,

Many of you have asked how we are doing, and how our clients are fairing through this incredibly difficult time. Never before has our country, or our world, seen this type of pandemic in our lifetime. Every guideline---shelter in place, social distancing, STAY AT HOME---is what we all need to do to stay healthy.

However, for many of our families, staying at  home is the most dangerous place   to be. 

Domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, are all anticipated to increase during the COVID-19 pandemic. China reported three times the number of cases in February compared to the same month the year before. 90% of those reports were related to the COVID-19 crisis, given people living in such close quarters.

We at RESOLVE are open and conducting tele-therapy every day. Utilizing technology such as Doxy, Zoom, FaceTime, or even by phone, are all options we offer to our clients. We are seeing an increase in anxiety, depression and fear given the current situation, and RESOLVE is committed to doing everything possible to keep our clients safe. We fully anticipate a significant increase and demand for our therapeutic services when we get to a "new normal".

One of our current clients (and there are many in this situation), is a healthcare provider dealing with patients in a work environment that is unbelievably stressful, while her children are living with her abusive partner. In fact, many of our clients are professional working women, where the only "safe place" is work. For many, that safe place has been taken away due to the pandemic. For others, given COVID-19, they put themselves at risk at work and at home  but for very different reasons.

Many of you have also asked how you can help. There are many ways to help RESOLVE and our families in need. Please visit our Wish List here  https://www.resolve-roc.org/wish-list  for concrete, immediate needs.

If you wish to make a monetary donation----in any amount----please click here to donate  as we are preparing for an increased demand for our services.

More than anything, THANK YOU . Thank you for your ongoing support, concern, well wishes for those in such dangerous situations, and for being in this fight together.  

We are here for those who need us most, and YOU are all a part of that.

With our deepest gratitude,

At RESOLVE, we believe that all people deserve to thrive and feel safe in their homes. We see domestic violence differently. Where others see helplessness, we see courage and strength. Where others see desperation, we see resilience. We understand the complexities of breaking the cycle of domestic violence for individuals and communities. In our more than 20 years of service, RESOLVE has helped more than 3,000 domestic violence survivors thrive through our individual and group counseling programs that promote independence and well-being; while our innovative outreach programs have engaged thousands of youth, men, health care providers and members of the faith community in domestic violence prevention.
