WHAT A WONDERFUL TIME IT IS! — Life After Domestic Violence with Dorothea Robinson
What a happy time it is! Yes, we are stuck in this mandatory quarantine and we are able to do so many things. This time to be great creative, we can serve, yup right from where we are we can serve. This is what I have been thinking of doing things out of the box, and serve my community the best I possibly can. I would like to ask those of you who serve their clients to do it in such a way to assist them in the best way possible.

How are you assisting those who are victims of abuse and quarantined with abusers? The world for them is very stressed and highly likely to have more occurrences of abusive events. Buts as advocates we can make sure that we stay connected and we can think outside the box to stay safe while in the house. Are you staying with them? Are you holding hands? Are you doing more work than you may usually? This is the time to use your skills and training while thinking out the box to assist.
Don’t allow what we see, but look deeper and out of the park to ensure that victims are safe as well as the children that might need you at this moment right now. Those of us who are Leaders, Advocates, and in a position to assist victims during this time in our current situation, let’s make sure that we do our best to give the best to those in need. This can be the best time in our lives when we know that we can serve someone else in need!
