As Maryland and the United States continue to take precautions for the health and well-being of our communities, the Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MCASA) and the Sexual Assault Legal Institute (SALI) are here for you and will continue to provide services to our clients, Rape Crisis Centers, SARTs, and other professionals. 

Survivors of sexual violence are still experiencing increased dangers as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is important to share accurate information and resources with our community to make sure that survivors, friends & family, and service providers have the tools they need to continue to respond in ways that are safe and supportive. This page includes resources for survivors, advocates, service providers, and communities.

What SA/DV programs can do, adapted from the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence:

  • Stay up to date with your local health department. Make contact with health officials in your county who can provide guidance and resources as the situation changes.
  • Plan with program staff and community partners for how you will continue to provide essential services and meet the needs of vulnerable populations. See the Emergency Preparedness Resources for Maryland.
  • Courthouses and clerks' offices are fully open to the public. Courts have resumed hearing all matters, including jury trials. This website provides more detailed information:
