The demands being placed on healthcare workers, first responders, and mental health professionals rival that of other tragic historical moments such as Pearl Harbor and 9/11 when the demands exceed that of the system’s capabilities to meet them.

COVID-19 and Domestic Violence

Special Note:  During the COVID-19 epidemic, we know that increased stress in the home can bring wear and tear on our families and relationships. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men in the United States have experienced violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime— and the risks to victims are severe. Whenever there is violence in the home this can create additional negative mental as well as physical health issues. At His Heart Foundation, we encourage you to reach out for help if your home [...]
