Safe at Home

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused stress and financial instability in households across Rhode Island. Social distancing, while critical to slowing the spread of COVID-19, increases isolation and the likelihood of violence for at-risk Rhode Islanders.

Safe at Home was launched by the Rhode Island State Police in concert with leading community organizations to raise awareness of the threat of increased violence during the COVID-19 pandemic. Safe at Home is focused on connecting with those who may be facing violence at home and providing all Rhode Islanders with resources to identify and help those at-risk.

If you are a survivor of violence, you are not alone. Help is available.

If you are in immediate danger, please call or text 911 (include your address in the text). For non-emergency assistance, please call (800-494-8100) or visit Rhode Island Victims of Crime Helpline The Helpline is a free, 24/7, confidential resource for those impacted by crimes of violence. The Helpline is a collaboration between Day OneThe Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Blackstone Valley Advocacy Center.

People who are surviving violence in their relationships or families may be experiencing increased isolation and danger caused by social distancing measures during the COVID-19 pandemic. A comprehensive resource document can be found in English or in Spanish.
