Hope Card Offers A Lifeline To Domestic Voilence Victims In Fairfax County

Since the pandemic began, incidents of domestic violence have increased, and in Fairfax County, Virginia, detectives note that they’ve also become more violent. The county has a new resource for victims that fits in the palm of their hand. “It’s a lifesaver,” Saly Fayez said, describing the free HOPE cards that offer anyone with a permanent protective order a discreet way to ask for help. According to wtop.com, "The laminated HOPE cards, which are about the size of a credit card and issued by the courts, can also identify any children who could be at risk. It allows kids to hand them to a coach or teacher discreetly if an abuser shows up at school and police need to be called. “It also helps with officer safety. So, if there’s a weapon involved or there has been a weapon involved, that’s in red on the card. So the officer knows that it has identifying information about the abuser,” Fayez said." As per wtop.com, "For more information on the Hope Card, you can contact the Fairfax County police’s Victim Services Division main line at 703-246-2141, the Fairfax County Domestic Violence Action Center at 703-236-4573, or contact the statewide Hope Card Program coordinator Jaime Clemmer at [email protected]"
