The YWCA’s primary focus is on safety: immediate protection from violence and abuse.  Our 24 Hour Support and Crisis Line is answered by skilled, empathetic staff around the clock. We’re available to provide support and offer practical resources that help women stay safe and rebuild their lives.

Last year we answered 5,772 calls on this line.  Sometimes we speak with women, and people in their lives who love and support them, who are simply wondering about their options.  Other times, we speak with women who urgently need the safety of our shelter and services.

If you need help, please contact us any time, day or night.
