*Not all kids and adults are safe at home. Incidents of child abuse and domestic violence tend to rise during times of financial difficulty and extreme stress, both of which will be experienced. With no school, sports and other activities, children will have less access to caring adults who can intervene. Keep your eyes and ears open and be aware. If you see something or suspect abuse please report it. Those who can help child abuse and domestic violence victims will still be there to help.
