CRISIS SERVICES | COVID-19 UPDATE

In light of the current situation with COVID-19

Women In Crisis will continue to support women and children experiencing abuse and violence through our 24/7 Crisis Telephone Line and Walk in Counselling services.

Information and options will be discussed at that time with our Crisis Counsellors.

Please note the following COVID-19 safety procedures in place to keep our community safe

  1.   All women attending the shelter for services will be asked to wear a mask.
    • If you do not have a mask one will be provided for you.
    • If you are unable to wear a mask please advise staff (you will not be denied access to our services)
  2.   When you arrive:
    • You will be asked a few screening questions
    • Your temperature will be taken
    • You will be asked to use hand sanitizer or to wash your hands
  3.   Our counsellors will then lead you into a counselling room where you will be permitted to remove your mask once you are seated on the other side of the plexi glass 6 feet away from the counsellor.

This information will be updated as necessary.
