COVID-19 – National Strategy Session for Sustaining Services

COVID-19 – National Strategy Session for Sustaining Services


From 11:00 AM until 12:00 PM

Presented by the National Resource Center for Reaching Victims/Vera Institute of Justice

The spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the rapidly evolving circumstances in which we find ourselves present an opportunity for us to come together and tackle these unprecedented challenges together. Survivors need victim services now more than ever. Protecting against the spread of COVID-19 is creating new dynamics and barriers to services for survivors. It is also creating an urgent call to action for advocacy programs.


How do we stay connected with survivors and continue to provide support, especially to those with the fewest resources and in greatest need, while also keeping our programs, staff, and communities healthy? We need each other now more than ever to solve these challenges. We know that survivors and advocates are resilient and our collective strength will carry us through these unprecedented and unpredictable times.


We invite you to join us for a series of discussions where we tap into this strength and one another's creativity to solve the challenges before us together.
