A crisis, by definition, is an urgent, difficult, or dangerous situation.
For 44 years, ELAWC has risen up during times of crisis, when a survivor is sexually assaulted, lives in fear of intimate partner violence, or is on the threshold of homelessness because of domestic violence, poverty, and isolation.
During this global COVID-19 crisis, we will be here for you. While we all face great risk to our health, safety, and financial well-being, we know that many of our community members are vulnerable and we collectively will be there for them. We will list resources on our website to provide support during this crisis.
We are committed to ensuring the safety of our staff, volunteers, and the families we serve and are making many adjustments so we can continue to provide services with confidence. Here are the measures we are taking:
• To minimize personal contact, our staff is working a staggered schedule, or remotely.
• We are following all CDC guidelines for disinfecting and sanitizing surfaces in our offices and in our shelters and practicing social distancing.
• We are making adjustments in our shelters and programs to protect staff and clients from exposure to COVID-19.
We are all in this together. United in strength and compassion for all, we will prevail during this time of global crisis.
