Guest: Guest: Jeneen Klippel Director of Development and Public Relations  Domestic violence is on the rise with the stay at home orders.  Isolation is the tool abusers use to abuse and control a situation.  Gateway Domestic Violence has a 24/7 crisis line available.  They are 100% operational right now.  They are an essential agency.  Domestic violence is not just physical abuse; it is also emotional and philological.   Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse; it means the abuser is trying to make the victim think they are crazy.  An example would be them trying to convince the victim the sky is green.  Domestic violence is the most committed crime.  Gateway Domestic Violence has the crisis line, an emergency shelter, an extended stay program, a non-residential consoling program, a court advocacy program, and a community education program.          Crisis Line 303-343-1851 www.gatewayshelter.org
