Resources: Child Care and Safety
We are standing by and ready to help - Domestic Violence Services Are Available During COVID-19
The North Suburban Legal Aid Clinic remains open for business even as our physical office is closed in an effort to limit gatherings due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We welcome the opportunity to schedule individual and family phone appointments for intakes and follow-up meetings and we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing confidential, accessible, high-quality, pro-bono assistance and at this time, particularly to domestic violence victims and those that wish to help them.
Home is a place of safety and sanctuary in a time of chaos and uncertainty. However for women and even some men, home is a place of violence and fear. The risk for these individuals under self-isolation could mean life or death as controlling perpetrators will further restrict their partner’s freedoms and threaten their safety. This comes at a time when support services may be unavailable or difficult to access.
As we all continue to take precautions and manage the impact that COVID-19 will have on ourselves, our families, and communities, please join us in making sure individuals experiencing domestic violence are safe and secure. If you or someone you know is living in danger, be in touch – do not wait.
We may be reached at 847-737-4042 or info@NSLegalAid.org. Visit us at www.NSLegalAid.org or find us on social media.
We are standing by and ready to help. In addition, the courts are open for Orders of Protection or for other emergency relief and our attorneys are ready and available to go to court if needed.
We are in this together. Thank you for your support and partnership.
