Need Help Now? We are here for you!
Call our 24-hour Crisis Resource Line at 334-263-0218 (collect calls accepted)
If you are in immediate danger, call 911. Local police officers and sheriff’s deputies can help you reach safe shelter.
The decision to reach out is the first step in seeking help with domestic violence, sexual assault, or human trafficking. Our 24/7 crisis resource line is a safe way to break the barriers of silence and isolation often experienced after trauma. Calls are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by a Family Sunshine Center crisis advocate ready to help: providing confidential, non-judgmental support. They will talk with you about your safety, provide information on resources in your community, and connect you to needed programs and services. The call is completely free of charge, and you can provide as much, or as little, information about yourself as you like — you can even call anonymously. Whether you are prepared to leave or not, our services are available to you. There is never a cost to you for our services.
You are not alone!
Concerned that someone you love is being hurt?
Do you know someone who is being hurt? Or someone who is causing harm? Are you worried about what might be happening in a loved one’s relationship? You are not alone—we are here to help!
“Addressing Domestic Violence: A Guide for Friends and Family” was created to help you support someone who is struggling in their relationship—and to take care of yourself while you’re doing it. People are more likely to turn to their community (friends, family, YOU) than they are to professionals.
Survivors tell us that what matters most is having someone in their life who is there for them, without judgment, to bounce ideas off, get support, and lean on when things are tough. You can be that person. These tips and tools will help you get started.
