The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the lives of children and families. The American Academy of Pediatrics, in collaboration with Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), and Futures Without Violence, developed a project to expand and strengthen the capacity, collaboration, and coordination of pediatric health care providers and service agencies to identify and support children and women at risk for exposure to violence during the ongoing response to COVID-19.

These infographics provide information about the experiences of families experiencing violence, as well as the experiences of domestic violence agencies, during the pandemic.
