If you are in immediate danger, please call 911.
Otherwise, our 24-hour crisis hotline is answered seven days a week, 365 days a year. The hotline is the first step in seeking help for sexual assault and domestic violence. Our hotline advocates can provide crisis intervention, help you create a safety plan, prepare to leave when the time is right, find emergency shelter, help you access counseling and legal advocacy after completing an intake with a Hope Alliance advocate, arrange for a SANE exam (forensic exam after a sexual assault), and provide you with referrals to other resources in the community.
Our advocates maintain a strict policy of confidentiality, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, you can use a nickname when you call the hotline. Under certain situations a hotline advocate may be required to break confidentiality because we are mandated by law to make a report if we believe that a child, a person 65 years or older, or an adult with disabilities is being abused, neglected or exploited. We will also make a report with law enforcement if we believe you might harm yourself or someone else
