The Domestic Violence Resource Center ("DVRC") helps thousands of victims throughout Albuquerque and its surrounding communities, each year. Providing services for victims during the coronavirus outbreak has been challenging, frightening; and the dangers have escalated. The statewide “stay-in-place” order in New Mexico has forced victims to stay in close quarters with their abusers resulting in an increase in severity and brutality of physical harm, rape and sexual assaults. The violence has the effect of silencing victims for fear of having to find shelter and protection while being locked down. DVRC needs your help. The number of victims and the services they need are building up. On-scene assistance from advocates responding to police calls is expected to double; increases for emergency medical help, transportation, shelter, clothing and food has already started; and the need for case management and counseling to heal victims is expected to exceed DVRC capacity unless additional funding can be met. Your contribution will go directly to helping victims of domestic violence giving them safety and guidance. Please give generously to DVRC.
