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.

Counseling and Support Groups

The Counseling Department specializes in working with domestic violence and sexual assault victims/survivors. Counseling can take place on a one-on-one basis or in a group setting. The Counseling Department provides individual assessments and case management services to all victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault; individual, child, family and group counseling; referrals, support and advocacy with community agencies.

Safety planning for someone involved in an abusive relationship is a necessary and important step. Planning can be used while you are still with your abuser or after the relationship has ended. While still in an abusive relationship, your safety is of primary importance.

We also provide:
• Information on what your rights are as a victim.
• On call 24/7 to hospitals and the police station for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
• Information and referrals to other agencies
