This past year has been difficult for everyone, especially those experiencing the additional crisis of domestic violence. As the pandemic progressed, LSS CHOICES for Victims of Domestic Violence saw an increase in the need for our services, including safe shelter. At the same time, the number of calls to our hotline from victims and police officers with a high risk for lethality increased.
Our 30-minute Choose Hope special aired on October 21 on 10TV reaching thousands of people in our community. If you missed it, click on the Choose Hope video below to understand more about intimate partner violence, hear stories from survivors, and learn about the shelter and services offered at CHOICES.
