The Network is a collaborative membership organization that is providing a vital service in response to COVID-19. We are advocating day and night to ensure that our government provides emergency services to victims in crisis and funds our providers as they work to mitigate the harm quarantining could have on victims of domestic violence. We cannot leave victims in unsafe homes due to a lack of resources or planning. The Network is ensuring this does not happen.
