COVID-19 has imposed a new normal on all of us. Isolation. Social Distancing. But imagine if you were trapped in a home with an abuser. Think about how difficult it would be to make a call for help.
Cindy Capriles, Director of Counseling for Safe Harbor, discussed this dilemma with NBC 12. Click here to view the news segment.
Cindy is still meeting with clients using HIPAA-compliant video conferencing. And Safe Harbor is continuing to provide shelter and other services for survivors of sexual and domestic violence. These are essential services made all the more essential by a crisis of this magnitude.
Here are resources for those who need assistance:
- Crisis Text Line: Text hello to 741741
- Richmond Regional Hotline: 804-612-6126
- National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-7233
- Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255
Safe Harbor wants to remind our community of friends and supporters to check in with your loved ones and neighbors by phone or email.
