Free and confidential help is available for victims of domestic violence 24 hours a day. If you need help or just want someone to talk to, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at: 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or TTY 1-800-787-3224. As a survivor of domestic violence, your safety is at high risk when you leave an abusive relationship and right after you make that decision. It is important to work with a domestic violence advocate to develop a safety plan. Advocates can help you develop a plan for emergencies, connect you to community resources and discuss your options.
