For this week's episode of "Tuned In to NoCo," I spoke with local non-profit Alternatives to Violence about how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting victims of domestic violence.

Kari Clark, the organization's executive director, explained how we can all help these victims, even while self-isolating.

Now, the non-profit has released a video guide detailing what to do if you are experiencing violence in your own home.

Some of their tips include physically distancing yourself from your abuser if you can, planning an escape route, and staying in touch with friends and family as much as possible.

Also, remember that Alternatives to Violence is reachable 24/7 via (970)-880-1000, their crisis hotline.
