For many of us, home has been a safe haven during the uncertainty of this global pandemic. But sadly, for women, men, children, and LGBTQ persons living with abusive partners or family, home is anything but a safe place right now.
While domestic violence existed as a persistent global problem long before the pandemic, increased unemployment, mental health crises, financial stress, and lack of community support resources have contributed to a significant increase in reported domestic violence incidents since the COVID-19 outbreak.
With limited access to in-person support for victims and survivors, domestic violence hotlines are an essential public health service. For hotlines to continue their much-needed support work, they need your help to keep trained professionals on the line, ready for the next call.
You can help support a domestic violence hotline today by participating in Credo Mobile's monthly public vote that determines how Credo will allocate $150,000 to three different organizations.
