Survivors of domestic violence are in grave danger due to social distancing measures. Many are trapped at home with their abusers facing isolation, financial stress, and restricted access to information. To reduce the risk of harm under these circumstances, Sanctuary for Family’s Survivor Leaders and Clinicians have developed a Guide to Safety Planning During COVID-19, currently available in seven languages.
Sanctuary for Families is New York’s leading service provider and advocate for survivors of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and related forms of gender violence. Every year, they empower thousands of adults and children to move from fear and abuse to safety and stability, transforming lives through a range of comprehensive services and advocacy.
