COVID-19 Update

A message from our team:

Northwest CASA provides essential support and services to survivors of Sexual Violence in our community. As an agency, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 virus concerns and are checking daily for new information and guidelines from the CDC and State of Illinois. The safety of our clients and staff is our top priority, so we are taking the following steps:

Our 24/7 hotline remains open and available to all survivors of Sexual Violence, their loved ones, and community members seeking support and services. Our Advocacy team continues to work with our hospital partners and provide support to survivors who seek out services in the ER.

Our counseling team continues to provide trauma therapy services to our clients. These services are increasingly important during this time of heightened anxiety when clients may need additional support. Our team is dedicated to ensuring clients continue to feel supported and are able to connect with their therapist. We are asking all clients and staff to follow the CDC recommendations such as disinfecting their personal space, hand washing, social distancing and providing telephone counseling as available.

We will be reevaluating our approach at the end of this month and will continue to monitor information from the CDC and State of Illinois. In the meantime, we urge you to stay safe and reach out to our hotline if you need support.
