Governor Lee told Tennesseeans Friday that there has been an increase in domestic violence and child abuse.

The Knoxville Family Justice Center has decided that in response they will be making safety cards to hand out to delivery drivers and such to include in orders.

The purpose of the cards is to reach those that may be in danger and give them ways to ask for help. Some of these ways include multiple helplines and different websites to help.

Distribute our safety cards

We need help reaching people who may be quarantining with an abuser and don’t know how to get help. Our safety cards have important phone numbers and a basic plan for how to stay safe in case of an argument. Help us get them to those who might need it.
