We provide callers with crisis intervention, information about domestic violence and referrals to local programs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in many languages.
Call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at
1-800-799-SAFE or from a TDD at 1-800-787-3224. All this help is just one phone call away:
Crisis intervention helping the caller identify problem and possible solutions, including making plans for safety in an emergency;
Information about sources of assistance for individuals and their friends, families, and employers wanting to learn more about domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, intervention programs for batterers, working through the criminal justice system, and related issues; and
Referrals to battered women's shelters and programs, social service agencies, legal programs, and other groups and organizations willing to help.
The National Domestic Violence Hotline links individuals to help in their area using a nationwide database that includes detailed information on domestic violence shelters, other emergency shelters, legal advocacy and assistance programs, and social service programs. One call summons immediate help, in English or Spanish, 24 hours a day, seven days each week. We also have interpreters available to translate an additional 139 languages. The Hotline may be reached toll-free by phone from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
