Our helpline is staffed 24/7, but not everyone can safely make the call.
“Beth” was worried about her safety. Washington’s “Stay home, stay safe” order reduced her chance of catching or spreading COVID-19, but it left her vulnerable to other dangers.
Her husband lost hours at work, which meant a smaller paycheck and more time trapped at home with him. While he never hurt her physically, the emotional abuse grew by the day, scaring Beth and their young daughter.
In her brief moments alone Beth reached out to LifeWire via email. Working with an advocate only through email Beth put together a safety plan and came up with ways to keep her and her daughter safer.
