We know it can be difficult to reach out about abuse that is going on in your life. Picking up the phone or meeting with someone in person is not always an option. SafeChatSV was created to provide an alternative means of communication for individuals wanting to connect. We provide a secure 1:1 live chat with a trained advocate.
Keeping privacy and confidentiality in mind, you can access our chat system through this website without the need to download an external app. So if you are seeking assistance but unable to reach out or uncomfortable with other means of connecting, we welcome you to try out SafeChatSV.
If you are questioning whether or not a relationship is abusive, we are here to be of support and we encourage you to connect with us.
SafeChatSV is also available to family, friends, and other concerned community members or service providers that may have questions or are seeking support around domestic violence.
Kind, compassionate, responsive advocates that can provide support, information & resources
