While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities, challenges impacting women and girls are compounded. The Women’s Fund is not a direct service provider, and yet we recognize the need for resources now more than ever and are committed to amplifying what is available in our local communities.
Freedom from Violence
If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, sexual violence or sex trafficking and needs assistance, there is help available. You are not alone. Please call the WCA 24-hour hotline at 402-345-7273 (Douglas County) or 800-523-3666 (Sarpy County) or you can text LOVEIS to 22522. More information about sexual assault resources and reporting options are available online at SexualAssaultHelp.org.
