Here for You - Services for Survivors of Domestic & Sexual Violence During COVID-19
The impact of COVID-19 has changed all of our daily lives significantly. We recognize these changes may create additional turmoil for survivors in our community with the added stress of lost work, schooling children at home and social isolation. Here at Turning Points Network (TPN), our top concern is how to support survivors and their children. We want you to know – we are still here for you.
TPN is committed to providing the best services to communities across Sullivan County. We have carefully considered all advisories from the NH Department of Health & Human Services as well as the CDC and have taken significant precautions to protect the health of staff and volunteers and of survivors needing help.
In our efforts to practice social distancing, we have put in place a system of remote advocacy to ensure we are available to support you. Our crisis and support line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, as is our emergency shelter. We are still providing personal and legal advocacy and helping with emergency housing through our shelter and hotels. If you need help, do not hesitate to call. You can still access the support of our volunteer and staff advocates and get help with critical resources.
We understand these are challenging times for everyone. If you or someone you know is experiencing abuse, please continue to reach out to us. We are available 24/7 through our crisis and support line at 800-639-3130 for emotional support, access to services and to help you achieve safety. Don’t let fear of infection put you in further danger.
