National Domestic Violence Hotline

The National Domestic Violence Hotline provides an immediate response to victims of domestic violence and their families, and a seamless referral system to community programs in response to the needs of the women, men and children on the line. The Hotline, operated 24/7 and available in 170 languages, is the first step to safety for many callers whose unique situation is assessed and evaluated to meet short term needs, with a local referral to assist the caller in dealing with the long-term effects of family violence.
