Our Crisis Line number is (504) 277-3177. The Crisis Line is the first step in receiving services through our programs and/or referrals to our partner agencies. Trained staff will assist you in finding ways to be safe and be prepared to leave when the time is right. The Crisis Line provides a 24-hour safety net for victims of domestic violence and their families through crisis intervention, emergency shelter, transportation, and referral services. Services focus on providing emotional support, safety planning, domestic violence education, information and referrals and one-on-one assistance with accessing resources to become self-sufficient. A safety plan helps you think of strategies for keeping safe while you are in an abusive relationship, when you are ready to leave the relationship and after you have left. Call our hotline at (504) 277-3177 to receive help building a personalized safety plan.
Domestic Violence is the effort to dominate or control an intimate partner through repeated systematic abuse. Abusers use physical, sexual, economic, emotional, and psychological abuse. It affects people in all social, economic, racial, religious, and ethnic groups - whether they are married, divorced, living together, dating, straight or in a LGBTQIA+ relationship. Although anyone can be a victim of domestic violence, women are by far the most common victims. You are able to donate with Amazon & Give Nola Day:
