Does anyone else find themselves spread too thin and unable to accomplish near what they need...let alone do? Of course I know the answer to that rhetorical inquiry. We are all beyond busy these days. I have at least two fantastic (my assessment anyway : ) blog posts half written and the remainder percolating in my mind. What a luxury it would be to simply focus on online writing and interaction with the great community of advocates that exists.
Sadly, when I cannot find the time to write that means that I am in crisis intervention mode. This weekend ( 3 days) in our small county of 56,000 we had 2 rapes and a felonious domestic assault where the victim was flight-cared to the hospital, not to mention several domestic arrests and 2 personal protection order violations. I wonder if other advocates find themselves barely keeping up with the immediate crises and emergency safety measures and seldom have time for long term advocacy, let alone prevention and systems change work.

Debby Tucker of NCDSV was kind enough to pass along this continuun of care model recently that I think is fantastic and wanted to share (click to enlarge). I hope to get back to original posts soon
