In this pandemic, mandated quarantines and social distancing mean that some victims of domestic violence have been trapped inside with their abusers and are isolated from the people and resources that could help them be safety and have peace of mind.
New York state has a message for victims of domestic violence during this stressful time: You are not alone. If you are in a dangerous domestic violence situation, New York will help you find a safe shelter. You are not trapped just because of coronavirus. Call 1-800-942-6906 (for English) or 1-800-942-6908 (for Spanish) or visit http://nsycasa.org.
If you are in immediate danger, call 911.
