Governor Tony Evers issued a “safer at home” order on Tuesday, March 24, 2020. The order, which shuts down many non-essential businesses in the state, includes specific language when it comes to domestic violence victims and domestic violence shelters.
The order states, “Individuals whose homes or residences are unsafe or become unsafe, such as victims of domestic violence, are permitted and urged to leave their home and stay at a safe alternative location.”
Those locations can include:
YWCA Rock County continues to serve domestic violence victims in our community. We offer a 24-hour help line, as well as a text line.
For domestic violence victims who need assistance, call 608-752-2583 or text 608-371-9288.
Staff with our domestic violence emergency shelter, transitional living program and CARE House remain ready to help those who need it.
