National Domestic Violence Hotline

Filed Under: Domestic Violence, Hotlines

Trained advocates are available to talk with those affected by domestic violence, offering crisis intervention, options for next steps, and connections to direct services. Women, men, or children can call the hotline number or instant message with advocates by clicking the “chat” button on the website.  Anyone can call.

The Hotline is also an excellent source of help for concerned friends, family, co-workers and others seeking information and guidance on how to help someone they know.

Service hours

Hotline and chat are 24/7.


Bilingual advocates are on hand to speak with callers, and the Language Line offers translations in 170+ different languages. 

While every effort is made to provide current and accurate information for the agency descriptions and hours of operation, it is recommended to call the agency to verify the information before visiting.
