As our communities prepare for the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), domestic violence and sexual assault programs are preparing as well. ANDVSA will continue to update this page with resources to help DVSA programs stay informed and connected.

For Survivors

The domestic violence/sexual assault program in your area is a safe place. Advocates are working to ensure that people who need help can continue to access their services. If you need help, click here to find the program in your area.

For Service Providers

What you can do right now

  • Review official guidance on preventing the spread of illness and  take actions to encourage healthy behaviors.
  • Review your organization’s policies and protocols for responding to illness and emergency.
  • Actively encourage employees to stay home if they are feeling sick.
