Message regarding COVID-19

As of March 19, 2020
In order to do our part in protecting vulnerable populations and to slow the transmission of COVID-19, many programs of the Alliance will be limiting in-person contact during the crisis. This has not been an easy decision, but we want to ensure everyone that services will still be provided to anyone that needs them.

Mountain Crisis Services will be limiting in person services for survivors at our office. Some in-person appointments will be necessary and will be scheduled by staff. Our hotline will be operational 24/7, our domestic violence shelter is still operating, and all counseling will be done via telephone or through video-based services. Legal Advocacy will still be available and advocates will still accompany survivors to court.

The Alliance provides services to some of the most vulnerable people in our community and we will continue throughout this crisis. We are working diligently to ensure our staff are supported during this time so that we can continue to offer these vital services. We look forward to when our services can resume without restrictions and we will continue to make changes as things evolve. Feel free to reach out to any of our programs to learn how to access services or how you can be a support during this time.

Domestic Violence

Are You Being Abused?

Domestic Violence is a pattern of emotionally, physically or sexually abusive behavior that one person uses in a relationship to control another person. It can occur in families and friendships, and the manipulation is often times very subtle. Are you a victim of domestic violence?

Ask yourself these questions…

Are you frightened by you partner’s temper?

Are you afraid to disagree?

Are you constantly apologizing for your partner’s behavior, especially when they have treated you badly?

Do you have to justify everything you do, every place you go, or every person you see just to avoid your partner’s anger?

Does your partner put you down, then tell you that they love you?

Have you ever been hit, kicked, shoved or had things thrown at you?

Do you not see family or friends because of your partner’s jealousy?

Have you been forced into having sex when you didn’t want to?

Are you afraid to break up because your partner has threatened to hurt you or themselves?
