We hope you are safe and healthy during these challenging times.

During this time, our staff are working remotely. If you need assistance, please email us at dosw@sfgov.org. You can also call at 415-252-2570 and leave a voicemail message with your name, phone number or email address, and your request. We will get back to you as soon as possible.

As of March 17, 2020, San Francisco issued a Public Health Order requiring everyone to stay home except for essential needs such as to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary healthcare, or go to essential job. More details about the order are available here. This order is in effect until May 1, 2020. 

We are also thinking about our community during this time, especially survivors of violence. For resources for survivors, families, and community members, we have created a COVID-19 Resources Page, available here. You can also access our VAW Grants Program resources, here

Thank you, stay safe, and help us to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
