As COVID-19 continues to impact our community, SafeQuest is committed to continuing to provide comprehensive and trauma-informed services for survivors to the best of our ability during these unprecedented circumstances.
Based on guidance from our local public health department, the CDC, CDPH, and in alignment with changes being made by other shelters and crisis centers throughout the state, we are implementing limited and temporary changes to our services and programming. The health of our staff, volunteers, and the people we serve is of utmost importance to us. Therefore, our crisis services and individual counseling sessions will be shifting from in-person to phone or video conferencing.
SafeQuest will not provide accompaniment services to court hearings, hospitals, or large group settings until further notice. Our 24/7 crisis line will continue to operate normally. In-person, non-crisis services and programming are postponed at this time. SafeQuest is developing infrastructure to administer individual counseling and peer groups remotely and will provide timely updates when available.
