Elder Abuse Services

Due to COVID-19 Precautions & Mandates:

DV Counseling Services have transitioned to telecounseling. Counselors or case managers have been in contact with clients to set up this option.

DV Satellite Office at 188 Washington Avenue is closed to the public until further notice. If someone is in need of domestic violence services, call our Domestic Violence 24-Hour Hotline at 518.432.7865

 

If you or someone you know is seeking services and have concerns related to COVID-19, we will certainly guide you under the direction of NYS Department of Health, and coordinate services accordingly.

If you are experiencing domestic violence and are quarantined, please call our DV Hotline at 518.432.7865—we are able to provide you services that will safeguard you and others, including alternative emergency housing options.
