Safety means different things amid COVID-19. Social distancing is not always the safest step when co-quarantining with an abusive partner. Social isolation may help to reduce the spread of COVID-19, but for many women, staying home is not a safe option. Violence against women continues to be a public mental health issue and sometimes even greater during these times. Battered Women’s Support Services is now working round the clock 24/7 to assist women in this crisis time by providing emergency housing, and cell phone minutes, food, and counseling. Your support is much needed and appreciated.
