Crisis Resources & Support


The National Domestic Violence Hotline

Call 1−800−799−7233 (or TTY 1−800−787−3224). It's free, confidential and available 24/7.

Highly trained advocates provide support, information, planning, and crisis intervention in 170 languages to hundreds of thousands of domestic violence victims.

The National Domestic Violence Hotline is a 24-hour, confidential, toll-free hotline created through the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in the United States. Hotline staff will begin each call asking if the call is a 911-emergency. If it is an emergency, the operator will immediately connect the caller to a service provider in his or her area. If the call is deemed a non-emergency, the operator may speak to the caller to offer emotional support and/or refer the caller to verbal abuse support groups in the city where she or he resides.

US Department of Justice / FBI

If you are a victim of cyberstalking or harassment across jurisdictional lines, sometimes local law enforcement's hands are tied.

If this is the message you are getting from your local law enforcement and local legal aid, then you may need to contact the FBI like I did. Cyberstalking and harassment is a federal crime handled by the US Department of Justice. In my case, I gathered my evidence (which included screen shots of social media attacks and harassing texts and emails) and filed a complaint at the local field office. While it took some time, I did hear back from local law enforcement that they were working with the FBI and law enforcement in the state of my harasser on my case.
