Sexual assault chat
Local sexual assault services providers were well equipped to handle support services, but the lack of a national hotline meant the issue did not receive as much attention as it should.In response, RAINN developed a unique national hotline system to combine all the advantages of a national organization with all the abilities and expertise of local programs.You'll enter a private chat with a trained RAINN support specialist and chat live by typing messages back and forth.The service is completely anonymous and confidential—we will never ask you for any information that would identify who you are.
They are diverse group of people with different backgrounds and experiences, dedicated to offering support.Most states do have laws that require local staff to contact authorities in certain situations, like if there is a child or vulnerable adult who is in danger.While almost all callers are connected directly to a staff member or volunteer at a local sexual assault service provider, a handful of providers use an answering service after daytime business hours. If all staff members are busy, you may choose to leave a phone number with the answering service.Since 2008 the Online Hotline has been available 24/7 to help those affected by sexual violence.Trained RAINN support specialists operate the Online Hotline out of the Washington, DC and New York City metropolitan areas and have helped more than 300,000 users since its launch in 2006.
