A Quick Note Regarding Services During COVID-19 Pandemic
Here at the Beacon Program, we know that these are very challenging times for our country and the world. Each day the news brings us ever changing information, creating anxiety and sometimes fear. While we know that most efforts are going towards combating this virus and minimizing it’s spread, we want you to know that the Beacon Program is still here offering support to our patient’s and employees who are experiencing intimate partner violence, human trafficking, elder/vulnerable adult abuse and/or neglect, sexual violence and child abuse and neglect. We know that “sheltering in place” can mean increased incidents of abuse and it’s important to ensure that patient’s and employees have the ongoing support they need.
While we are not currently providing in-person consultation and support services at this time, the Beacon Program is still available to provide support, resources and safety planning to patients via telephone! If you or someone you know is experiencing abuse or neglect and help is needed, please do not hesitate to contact us at 984-974-0470. If you are a provider working in the medical center, you can also page the Beacon Program or place an Epic order.
As we all face this uncertain time together, please know that the Beacon Program staff are keeping our employees, patients and their families, and our courageous medical providers on the front line in our thoughts!
