The crisis line is accessible 24-hours a day.

IN-PERSON SUPPORT SESSIONS
Crisis counselors are available to meet with survivors, as well as family, friends, and loved ones in-person during our office hours. We can also provide additional literature and resources. All services are kept confidential.
ACCOMPANIMENTS & ADVOCACY
Did you know that survivors have a legal right to have an advocate? RISE staff and volunteers are available to support and accompany survivors to a number of sites including, but not limited to: medical exams, any law enforcement interviews/meetings, and court hearings. Call to request an advocate.
TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDERS
Navigating the family court system alone can be difficult and overwhelming. RISE provides survivors with a trained, dedicated advocate to help them obtain court ordered safety through a Temporary Restraining Order. For more on this see our Restraining Order Assistance page.
Client advocates work closely with survivors to help with a whole range of needs by setting short- and long-term goals. Goals may include addressing immediate needs; obtaining housing, employment, and income; or anything else that helps the survivor move towards self-sufficiency and independence.
