The National Domestic Violence Hotline
The hotline provides lifesaving tools and immediate support to enable victims to find safety and live lives free of abuse. Resources and help can be found at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or for Deaf callers on video phone 1-855-812-1001 (Monday to Friday, 9 AM—5PM PST) or TTY 1-800-787-3224.
If it’s not safe for you to call, or if you don’t feel comfortable doing so, another option for getting direct help is our chat services here on the site. You’ll receive the same one-on-one, real-time, confidential information from a trained advocate as you would on the phone. You can chat Monday to Friday, 9AM—7PM CST.
