Serving ALL Survivors
Domestic and sexual violence impact everyone. People of all genders, ages, races, religions, and abilities face threats of violence, and Doorways is here to help them all. Through our domestic and sexual violence counseling programs, our hotline, our safehouse, and our advocacy programs, Doorways provides pathways to healing.

Data shows that intimate partner violence increases during every type of emergency, including outbreaks like COVID-19. It is more important than ever to ensure that everyone in need of help has access to support.
What You Can Do to Keep Families Safe
We have created a collection of posters that you can easily print on your home printer, on standard-size office paper. Please print these posters and ask your local businesses and grocery stores to hang them where they can be seen. It's especially important that these resources are available in places that survivors are permitted to go during this period of isolation.
Your Instagram Story can change lives
Consider using your social media to keep families safe. Here's a sample post for you to cut and paste, or even read aloud:
Free and confidential crisis support, information, and referrals are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week through Doorways' 24-Hour Domestic & Sexual Violence Hotline at 703-237-0881 .
