Our highly trained and supervised volunteer counselors and staff are available 24-7 to talk with survivors, their families and friends, and providers about sexual violence. We take calls from people in all stages of their experience, from the immediate crisis after an assault to years and even decades into the healing process. Our counselors will provide referrals to services and explain the resources available, including accompaniment to the hospital for a sexual assault exam.
