24-Hour Domestic Abuse Hotline: 208.343.7025


Home is not always safe, we’ve seen the proof

24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline: 208.343.7025 24-hour Rape Crisis Hotline: 208.345.7273 (RAPE)

As we enter Phase 2 of “Rebound Idaho”, we continue to provide services as we have throughout this pandemic.  We have yana2020-mhm-Twitter-Header.pngseen the proof that staying at home is having on those in abusive relationships through the increased number of calls to our hotlines and emergency intakes at our domestic violence shelter.

Home is not safe for everyone. This is especially true when you add the stress of close confinement to an already volatile relationship or living situation. With May designated to be “mental health awareness” month, we want to reiterate the fact that anyone can call our hotlines, from anywhere, anytime, to speak to a highly trained advocate and request services or support for themselves. However, everyone can call our 24-hour hotlines to get information and resources about how to help others that you are concerned about including friends, family members, co-workers and children you care about. 

While more of our team will begin to work on site at the Crisis Center, we continue to follow safe distancing protocols, wear face masks, do our own health screening and temperature checks – all with the continued safety of our clients and team in mind.  We are looking forward to seeing more of each other face-to-face, however, in our excitement to get back to “normal” we understand that this is going to take time and the better job we do following the lead of our healthcare professionals now, the better off we will be in the long-term. And, the sooner we will be able to return to a more normal state of being.

During this time, I have seen the WCA staff come together to expand and broaden our reach through the use of technology tools. The creativity, care and compassion used by the team in maintaining our services during this stressful time has been extraordinary. The generous support of our community as we have shared our message that “home is not safe for everyone” and talked about the increased need has been humbling.

Everything we are able to do for our clients and for all those community members who are now reaching out to us for help, is because of your support. As Idaho re-opens more and we socialize and enter back into more of our normal activities, please take care of yourselves, you are important to us.

With Gratitude,
