The National Domestic Violence Hotline

With the help of our dedicated advocates and staff, we respond to calls 24/7, 365 days a year. They provide confidential, one-on-one support to each caller and chatter, offering crisis intervention, options for next steps and direct connection to sources for immediate safety. Our database holds over 5,000 agencies and resources in communities all across the country. Bilingual advocates are on hand to speak with callers, and our Language Line offers translations in 170+ different languages.
