If you are in immediate danger – please call 9-1-1, advocates cannot take actual reports of sexual assaults or respond to a scene if you are in danger. Only police are able to assist with that, so please call 911 if you need to reach law enforcement directly.
Our hotline is available 24/7/365 and is answered by trained SOH staff and volunteer advocates. Advocates can assist with resources, information on next steps if someone has been sexually assaulted, and connections to the programs and services of the SOH. Signs of Hope strives to provide well informed advocates for those affected by sexual violence to consult with at any time assistance is needed. Advocates are not trained mental health counselors.
