The orders to shelter-at-home have brought much uncertainty, and for some, it means being stuck at home with an abuser. If you are in an unsafe situation, please familiarize yourself with local shelters, fill out a Domestic Violence Safety Plan (keep it one in a secure location and one with a trusted friend or family member), and review the resources below for more information. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions.
Please note that there are exceptions to the shelter-at-home directive in case of emergencies. If you are unsure of what to do, please call 911 or 311 for help.
