Crisis During COVID-19

Risks and Risk Factors

You Need Medical Attention

But you don’t want to go to the emergency room or call 911 because you might be exposed to the coronavirus.

Care for Older or Disabled Adults May be Reduced or Withdrawn

leaving these individuals more vulnerable to abuse or neglect.

An Abused or Neglected Child May Be Isolated

Teachers, counselors & day care providers aren’t seeing kids, so incidents of child abuse or neglect might not be reported.

You Need to Leave an Abusive Situation at Home

But there are stay-at-home orders in place in our community and throughout our state.
