Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19)

Dear Clients, Colleagues, and Friends,

We wanted to take a moment and connect with you directly as the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) continues to impact our communities. The well-being and safety of our clients and colleagues is our top priority and will always be at the heart of every decision we make.

We will continue to provide all services by phone, through a confidential website, or in person by appointment only. These services include safety planning, advocacy, counseling, legal consults, legal intakes, etc. We will not be taking ‘walk in’ appointments until further notice.

We will continue to monitor protocols and guidelines set forth by the CDC and our local government agencies.

As the current situation evolves, we will be making proper adjustments. We will continue to assess the situation during the coming weeks, and will communicate any further decisions made. Please have clients call the hotline at 703-777-6552.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
