During COVID-19, access to trusted and security internet-based domestic violence services is even more important for survivors and concerned friends and family members who are trying to find ways to keep themselves safe while many states are on “stay-at-home” orders.

The myPlan app, led by Johns Hopkins School of Nursing faculty Nancy Glass, is an interactive safety decision aid that is accessible via a mobile app and website, and designed to assist intimate partner violence (IPV) survivors in identifying and navigating their own safe path forward. It is secure, free, and personalized to unique situations. myPlan helps survivors and family members identify, navigate, and provide resources for a range of relationship abuse concerns.

As the lead researcher on this app, Nancy Glass, PhD, MPH, MS, RN, specializes in domestic violence and guiding women and families to safety, health, and economic security. 

She is available to discuss safety options for women, children, and families experiencing domestic violence during COVID-19.
