Arizona Voices Of COVID-19: Erin Bartholmey
The Show is hearing from Arizonans affected in different ways by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this series, Arizona Voices Of COVID-19, we’ve heard from health care workers on the frontlines of this pandemic as well as some of the hundreds of thousands of Arizonans who now find themselves unemployed.
However, there are those who are still working — the so-called essential workers who are still on the job as the world around them has changed.
Erin Bartholmey is the chief clinical officer at Chrysalis, a domestic violence agency here in the Valley. They provide help and shelter services for those experiencing abuse at home.
During the quarantine, instances of domestic violence have increased, and shelters like Chrysalis are vital for those who need a safe place. Erin and her team have been working around the clock to help victims of abuse.
