We are highlighting local heroes who are making sacrifices in their lives to help keep families fed, prepared and safe during the coronavirus crisis.

We are asking FOX8 viewers to tell us about the heroes they encounter on this journey.

The Guilford County Family Justice Center has not closed its doors during a time many people were told to work from home. The team has stuck together to provide hope and help to domestic and sexual violence victims serving as a lifeline to over 1,000 since the pandemic began. Today we are highlighting them as our heroes.

If you have a hero you want to share with us, send us a picture of the person and a few sentences about them to heroes@wghp.com.

You can also share them on social media by using #highlightingheroes.
