We have a team of trained advocates ready to talk with you. When you click the Chat with an Advocate button, you’ll be asked a couple of simple questions, to help us know who we’re talk to. If you don’t feel comfortable sharing your real information, that’s ok, you can give us whatever name you’d like. Everything you share with us is confidential. While you’re answering those questions, the system is connecting you with an advocate on our team.

Our advocates are all trained to support individuals who have experienced domestic violence or sexual assault, and can provide emotional support and help connect you with resources.
