In order to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Skagit County and protect our staff and clients, Skagit DVSAS has made some temporary changes to the way we provide services. While our agency office is temporarily closed to the public, SDVSAS advocates are still providing supportive services, including crisis intervention, safety planning, legal advocacy, advocacy- based counseling, shelter and emergency assistance by phone.
As always, our agency crisis line is available 24/7 at 888-336-9591. Those needing other types of assistance can schedule phone appointments with advocates during normal office hours. Our domestic violence and sexual assault support groups have been suspended but will soon be available via a video group. We are also providing live and recorded workshops and prevention sessions on Facebook.
This is a stressful and dangerous time for many victims and their children, who are now sheltered at home with abusive partners and have less choices and resources available to them. Nationwide, DV agencies are seeing a spike in hotline calls. During the past 2 weeks, Lethality Assessment calls from local law enforcement to Skagit DVSAS have doubled, indicating a countywide surge in the most dangerous domestic violence incidents.
Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault victims in our community need our support during this difficult time and we are here for them. You can help us support critical victim needs during this time through an on-line donation at our website.
