New or existing clients can receive free advocacy and therapy appointments from the comfort of their own home.
The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may be stressful for people and families. Fear and anxiety about a disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Coping with unemployment, social distancing, life style changes, food insecurity, illness, death of a loved one, isolation, domestic violence, crime, sexual assault, concern for loved ones, homelessness, or children missing school can all be a form of trauma. Our advocates and trauma informed therapists are ready to assist you and your family with confidential trauma informed services via telephone or HIPPA compliant webcast in the safety and comfort of your home. Our services are free of charge for ages 3 and up.
"People who are surviving violence in their relationships and families may be experiencing increased isolation and danger caused by social distancing measures during the Coronavirus pandemic. Survivors often have specific needs around safety, health and confidentiality. We also realize that people who are already more vulnerable to economic and health insecurity are facing additional challenges during this unprecedented time."
