We have been closely monitoring the unfolding public health crisis presented by COVID-19. As of now: All Child Health offices will be closed. Face-to-face home visits with families have been suspended until further notice. Child Health staff will continue to check in by phone and text with all our families, and we’ll be conducting virtual home visits by video chat. We’ll be reachable by phone and email as usual. Staff will also continue to communicate and collaborate virtually with each other on ways we can continue to support families and be a trusted resource for the community. All face-to-face events have been cancelled for the time being, including breakfast tours of our office scheduled for 3/24 and 4/17.

SHELTER FOR HELP IN EMERGENCY
During this COVID-19 crisis, the Shelter for Help in Emergency remains dedicated to providing emergency services for victims of domestic violence and their children with the priority of maintaining the safety, health and well-being of our community. During this time of social distancing, victims are at an increased danger due to home confinement with their abuser. As a way to gain power and control over their victims, an abuser may take advantage of an already stressful situation by withholding medical attention, taking away recommended safety measures such as hand sanitizer and/or cleaning products, or further isolating their victims by hindering their ability to interact with family and friends by phone or over the internet. The Shelter WILL remain open and ready to serve victims during this time of uncertainty. Our mission to end domestic violence in our community is strong and unwavering.
If you or someone you know is in need of services, please call our 24-hour hotline at (434) 293-8509.
SARA - SEXUAL ASSAULT RESOURCE AGENCY
SARA continues to provide services, adapting as necessary and working with our clients and community partners to prioritize safety and health. Our 24/7 hotline is 434-977-7273.
