The Coronavirus Safety project fills the gap in available knowledge by generating state-specific data on available services for survivors of interpersonal violence; exploring perceptions of service-providers on meeting the needs of survivors; and identifying innovative programs and practices in service delivery to survivors of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and human trafficking during the COVID-19 pandemic. The coronavirus pandemic has created an unprecedented crisis for agencies providing services to survivors of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and human trafficking and survivors themselves across the state of Texas and throughout the United States.
This study is assessing the safety and needs of service providers working with survivors of interpersonal violence, and survivors during the Coronavirus pandemic. This project seeks to provide vital information to service agencies, stakeholders, and survivors in Texas and beyond.
Specific project questions include:
- How is the Coronavirus pandemic impacting agencies focused on violence prevention and intervention?
- What are the strategies being used to prevent and mitigate the impact of violence?
- What are the safety and resource related needs of violence survivors and the staff who work with them during the Coronavirus pandemic?
