Thanks to generous donor support from our community, 180 has expanded our Sexual Violence Support Services to include an Online Chat Helpline on our website. This new service is an addition to our Sexual Violence Phone Hotline, counseling and supportive accompaniment at hospitals and police stations.
The Online Chat Hotline works as an instant messaging system, but with added security features. In a private and confidential chat space, individuals can anonymously type back and forth with a specially trained and caring counselor for support, advice or information.
The Online Chat Hotline is free and available to anyone affected by sexual assault, whether it happened to you, or someone you care about at: https://180nj.org/get-help/information-for-survivors/sexual-violence-program/chat/
The Online Chat Hotline is open on Fridays from 1:00 – 5:00pm and we look forward to expanding these days and times in the months ahead. As always, our phone lines are open 24/7/365 and you can speak with an advocate by calling our Sexual Violence Hotline at 888-264-7273.
180’s trauma-informed and culturally sensitive services include highly trained counselors and advocates who work from an empowerment model where survivors find the strength and courage to turn their life around. To support our mission, please visit: https://180nj.org/give-help/donate-to-180/
