Supporting Survivors Fireside Chat – Part Three

Blog banner that says "Caring for survivors and ourselves during COVID-19. There are pink, beige, and green round shapes along the top and right side of the banner

Over the last two weeks, we’ve shared a series of fireside chat videos about our work and how we are addressing the challenges of COVID-19. This week we share the third and last part of a conversation with staff members Elijah, Shannon, and Karen.

In this video, we explore how people can provide support to survivors in their life. We also share what services we offer to friends, family, and loved ones of survivors, and how we care for ourselves during COVID-19.

If you haven’t seen the first two videos, you can watch Part One here and Part Two here.
