Coronavirus Update

  • We know that home is not a safe place for everyone. Having to remain at home with an abuser can create a higher risk of abuse. Our Domestic and Sexual Violence staff continue to serve clients through our 24-hour hotlines (domestic violence: 708-485-5254, sexual assault: 708-482-9600), court advocacy, and counseling. Residential clients have been moved to alternate safe housing due to social distancing requirements. Tips for survivors are available in our YouTube video.
  • Outreach and advocacy staff are actively planning digital outreach including university e-learning activities and several public Zoom chats to be hosted throughout Sexual Assault Awareness Month (April). Stay tuned to our Facebook page to find out about new events as they open up.
