Where can I find additional information about sexual assault?

To read more about sexual assault, you can go to our About Abuse page. If you have been sexually assaulted, you may want to reach out for support to deal with the trauma of being a victim of sexual violence or intimidation. There are places that you can call for help:

  • Rape Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673) for support, information, and other resources. Free, confidential, 24 hrs.
  • National Domestic Violence Hotline 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or 1-800-787-3244 (TTY) for support, shelter, or services. Free, confidential, 24 hrs.
  • If you know a child who is being abused or neglected, you can call the Childhelp USA National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-4-A-CHILD (422-4453) for advice and information. This is not the same as reporting the abuse - the purpose is to give you information on options.  Free, confidential, 24 hrs.
  • For personalized legal information, you can contact the WomensLaw Email Hotline.

There are also Internet “chat rooms” for victims of sexual violence or intimidation where you can remain anonymous and still get support from others who have been through similar assaults.  Go to our Chats and Message Boards page for resources.
