MCADSV offices will be closed until further notice. With schools in MT closing for at least two weeks, staff will be practicing #SocialDistancing as much as possible (and we encourage everyone to do the same, as they are able). MCADSV staff will be working remotely, and will attempt to remain available during our regular business hours (9am – 5pm, Mon-Friday). Please expect slower response times.
We will continue to provide support to our member programs, and share information and resources as it pertains to our mission, supporting survivors, and helping advocates continue to provide life-saving services to survivors of violence.
In our efforts to practice #socialdistancing, the Sexual Assault Legal Services (SALS) program is now conducting remote advocacy for survivors! We are still processing referrals for services, providing safety planning, and contracting with attorneys across the state for civil legal services. If you are an advocate working with a survivor that needs legal assistance, or a survivor interested in our services, please email Ryan, our Specialized Legal Advocate, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
MCADSV does not provide direct services. If you need to locate an advocate in your area, please visit mcadsv.com/about/victim-service-programs-by-region/

From our friends at the National Network to End Domestic Violence:
“As the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues in the United States, many are preparing to work from home, face quarantines, and encounter some level of disruption to their daily activities. For individuals experiencing domestic violence, this public health situation can expose additional dangers.”
Advocates working in local programs and shelters are facing additional challenges as they seek to continue uninterrupted services for survivors. NNEDV has compiled guidance and resources for emergency preparedness for domestic violence shelters and programs here: bit.ly/2W9ITR2
