Immediate Emergency Support: 911
WRRC 24/7 HelpLine: 1-800-265-5390
WRRC has a 24/7 number you can call if you’re in any kind of crisis, or just need to talk through your options. One of our team members will be available to talk with you about what you’re immediate needs are. Your information is always kept confidential and safe.
When we first start working with you, it’s important to get a clear picture of your situation. You choose how much information you want to share. We use this information in planning for your safety, whether you decide to leave or stay in the relationship.
This begins with a conversation. There are several different topics that we ask about (completely in confidence) to determine the risk you are facing.
We know that relationships and social connection are a big indicator of health. For people who have experienced gender-based violence, healthy relationships can be powerful deterrents to returning to a violent situation. We have developed a number of programs to help grow organic relationships between those we work with, and our caring, supportive community.
At WRRC, we don’t believe that gender-based violence happens in a vacuum. We live in a culture that perpetuates violence against women and children. WRRC and our work is part of a larger, feminist movement for women’s rights. As such, we frequently take part in intersectional feminist events, such as the Women’s March, Take Back the Night, and other grassroots movements.
