Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender identity, race, income level, sexual orientation or religion. No one has the right to hurt, threaten, or make you feel afraid. REACH is here to help.

Are you afraid for your safety? Call 911. Tell the dispatcher that you are in danger and that you need help immediately. If you cannot get to a phone to call 911, leave. Go to a public place such as a library or grocery store and ask for help.

Have questions? Help is available. If you are concerned about your relationship or have concerns about a friend or family member, call REACH for support. You can reach us 24/7 on our free and confidential hotline at 800-899-4000.

We understand that you may have questions about your safety, rights, and resources. We also realize that it can feel scary to reach out for help. Research has shown that being connected to a domestic violence advocate can increase your safety and well-being. Our hotline staff is trained to provide supportive and confidential services in English and Spanish.
