**COVID 19 has directly impacted the entire globe in one way or another. More importantly, it has limited the opportunities for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse to have proper outlets from the abusive situations in which they live. For this reason, we are asking the community to reach out to their loved ones as much as possible, be there for friends and family, and volunteer at your local domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse nonprofit organization. If you are in the York, Chester, Lancaster or Union SC areas, we'd love to have you join our Volunteer Team!
