Confidential statewide Helplines
24-hour Domestic Violence Helpline:
24-hour Sexual Assault Hotline:
If you or someone you know is experiencing or has experienced domestic or sexual violence, you can contact the crisis center nearest you for information, referrals and support. In emergency situations, call 911. In non-emergency situations, you can talk to an advocate at your local crisis center about your options.
What Can I expect when I call?
When someone calls the statewide hotlines, they will often first talk with a crisis center's answering service. The answering service will take the caller's first name and number and have an advocate from the crisis center in her or his area call them back. Generally these calls are returned in about 5 minutes. Crisis center advocates are there to provide support and information.They can help survivors or concerned friends or family with things like safety planning or finding shelter, support groups, financial, medical, legal or social service resources. Many callers may just want someone caring to talk with who will listen and believe them. Advocates will share options and never pressure survivors to do anything they do not want to do.
Free and confidential support services are available across the state to those that have been impacted by domestic and sexual violence. You do not need to be in crisis to call.
