During times of crisis and economic uncertainty, instances of domestic violence and abuse often increase. It is important to know that while staying home is now the safest course of action for your physical health, there are resources available if you are experiencing domestic violence and abuse or someone close to you is.  The Survivor Advocates in the Well, the Counseling Center, and the Title IX Office continue to be available to offer assistance and support to students during this time.

There are a number of great national resources readily available during this time that survivors and friends of survivors of domestic violence can turn to learn about available safety options during the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

The National Domestic Violence Hotline continues to function 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Individuals who are concerned about computer monitoring can call the hotline number at 1-800-799-7233 or TTY 1-800-787-3224.  There is also a live chat option available at their website.

The National Sexual Violence Resource Center has a number of COVID-19 specific resources available including information on self-care for survivors who may be experiencing retraumatization during this uncertain time.

Futures Without Violence also has a number of COVID-19 specific resources available including information on safety planning when stay at home orders are in place.
