Due to the pandemic, we are meeting in person by appointment only. You can schedule an appointment by calling our 24/7 Hotline or by contacting us on social media, or our chatline . This could change as the Covid-19 situation develops. We will continue to provide all of our usual services. If you are looking for additional resources, or have any questions, please call the hotline for immediate support!
- Our free, confidential 24/7 hotline is still available to survivors and their support systems, with interpreters available for non-English speakers. We can provide emotional support, safety planning, referrals, and other forms of remote advocacy. If phone calls are not safe for you, we also monitor our email, Facebook, and Instagram messages. Stay tuned for a chatline, to be launched on the website soon. For more details about contacting us safely, visit our Get Help page.
