ENDGBV COVID-19 Response Work Group Summary Report: Supporting Survivors of Domestic and Gender-Based Violence from Crisis Through Recovery [open pdf - 0B]
From the Document: "On May 7, 2020, Mayor Bill de Blasio launched the ENDGBV [End Domestic and Gender-Based Violence] COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Response Work Group to identify and respond to challenges facing survivors of domestic and gender-based violence during the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in over 209,000 confirmed cases in NYC by June 2020. [...] The ENDGBV COVID-19 Response Work Group convened weekly (4 times) between May 15, 2020 and June 5, 2020 to identify actionable steps in three areas: (1) Public Awareness Efforts - explore ways to enhance and adapt efforts to share information and resources, knowing that survivors may have few outlets outside of their homes during COVID-19; (2) Best Practices for Remote Services - identify best practices in delivering services remotely and explore how the City can support providers during the shift in practice models; and (3) Survivor Needs - explore ways to enhance and expand existing resource and service systems, with a focus on prevention, disruption, and intervention, to meet survivor needs during COVID-19."
