The COVID-19 shelter-in-place order can create concern for victims and survivors of domestic violence. When survivors are forced to stay in the home or proximity of their abuser, it can create circumstances where their safety is compromised, and they may need to alter their safety plan. If you or a loved one are in need of support, call the National DV Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 or text LOVEIS to 22522 anytime, 24/7, for free and confidential support. You are not alone.
