DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, MY SISTER’S PLACE - TOPIC OF ONE HOUR RADIO SHOW FRIDAY FROM 10 AM TO 11 AM ON WVOX RADIO WWW.WVOX.COM OR 1460 AM
The NY Times reported that movement restrictions aimed to stop the spread of coronavirus may be making violence in homes more frequent, more severe and more dangerous. This is another public health crisis to the toll of the new coronavirus. Domestic abuse is acting like an opportunistic infection, flourishing in the conditions created by the pandemic. On Friday, April 17 from 10 AM to 11 AM I will interview Amy Siniscalchi, LMSW of My Sister’s Place on radio station WVOX. The program is streamed live on www.wvox.com or can be heard on 1460 AM.
My Sister’s Place provides hope and help for women who are victimized. The following is info about this terrific organization. If you know someone who is being victimized please call their hotline. Paul Feiner INFO ABOUT MY SISTER’S PLACE--IF YOU NEED TO TALK: 24-HOUR HOTLINE: 1-800-298-7233 At My Sisters’ Place, safety has always been at the center of all we do. While all have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, MSP advocates are conscious that for our clients, home is not always safe. In times of stress and uncertainty, rates of domestic violence have been known to greatly increase. We began checking in with clients as the extent of the COVID-19 crisis became evident. We quickly became aware that some of our clients had no option but to stay at home with an abuser. Our primary goals have been to ensure that MSP’s 24-hour crisis hotline remains operational to provide support, guidance, and safety options, and that our shelter remains open, safe and healthy for families and individuals who need these critical services. Our staff have been working around the clock to develop new ways of meeting both the immediate and long-term needs of survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking in Westchester. We are beginning to see the dire impact of isolation and quarantine on victims of domestic violence in Westchester who were already living with fear and violence. We are determined to support our clients through this challenging time. Our advocates are continuing checking in with vulnerable families who may be isolated from sources of support, and providing supportive and legal services remotely where possible. With our ability to engage in fundraising activities severely hampered, the community’s help will directly impact our ability to keep essential services operational and ensure that MSP comes through this crisis. Our work has become more complex, but we are committed to being there for families made even more vulnerable by the present crisis.
