We know that home is not a safe place for everyone. Having to remain at home with an abuser can create a higher risk of abuse. Our Domestic and Sexual Violence staff continue to serve clients through our FREE 24-hour hotlines (domestic violence: 708-485-5254, sexual assault: 708-482-9600), court advocacy, shelter, and counseling. Tips for survivors are available in our YouTube video.
Domestic violence and sexual assault are societal issues that can have lasting effects on survivors, their families, friends, and communities.
Through community partnerships and the expertise of our compassionate staff and volunteers, we are able to provide comprehensive services to adult and child survivors domestic and sexual violence. This includes emergency shelter, crisis intervention, medical and legal advocacy, counseling, and more.
