StrengthUnited's commitment to supporting survivors of violence and trauma has never wavered. As frontline providers of critical care for survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Child Abuse, we have had to make urgent and transformational changes to the way we provide services. Our dedicated staff has been working quickly and effectively to transition our services to remote methods, including videoconferences for groups, and telehealth check-ins, crisis intervention and crisis counseling, as well as advocacy, case-management, and linkages to resources.
One client told us how grateful she is to have the continued support of her group that is now meeting by teleconference. It gives her a safe place to share concerns and get advice and solidarity from other parents who are facing the same challenges. We are not going through this alone.
We know that the added stress and isolation from the COVID-19 crisis can make everyday situations challenging for all adults, children, and families, and can particularly create increased anxiety and risk for trauma survivors. So we are still here with them, and with you, providing trusted support around the clock.
