Finding Help from Domestic Violence during Covid

As Covid cases continue to increase, domestic violence is on the rise as families are forced together into close quarters without the temporary reprieves of work, school or recreation. For many folks, spending additional time at home is more dangerous than peaceful. Cities around the U.S. are reporting an increase in domestic violence-related crimes and homicides.

“Spouses or partners who already resort to verbal and physical abuse may feel more out of control and take their anger out on their partner or family," says Lynell Ross, a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for Placer County, California.

Here is a very useful guide on “How to Find Help from Domestic Violence,” by Lena Borrelli.
