Workers from L’EntourElle have noticed a decrease in calls to the 24/7 crisis line since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The community worker at the shelter, which helps women victims of domestic violence in the Pontiac, Vanessa Chabot, said however, that no increase in interventions in the region has been noted.
Ms. Chabot reminds that the resources offered by EntourElle remain available to women wishing to be supported and this, in complete confidentiality. Services are offered to counter violence in all its forms, whether physical, verbal, psychological, sexual or economic.
In the context of the pandemic, certain measures have been taken to ensure the health safety of employees and users of the organization.
