If you or someone you know is experiencing physical, emotional or psychological abuse from a spouse or partner, call our Emergency Hotline (24/7) for help and support.
A call to our Hotline is more than just a call for help. It’s the first step towards making a change, finding hope and creating a life free of violence and abuse. The Hotline is monitored 24-hours a day by trained advocates who provide support and explain options to anyone who has experienced any type of abuse from a current or former partner.
Chat & Text Support
Advocates are available for online and text support from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. You can communicate with one of our advocates by clicking on the ‘Chat for Help’ widget on our website, or by texting (412) 744-8445. All communication is confidential unless you disclose child abuse/neglect, or if you are feeling homicidal or suicidal. We are mandated reporters by law and must report this information.
