SAAM Resources: RAINN programs and the National Sexual Assault Hotline
April 10, 2020
The COVID19 pandemic has forced us to stay home. For many, home is known as a safe-space with family, but for others home is the place where they experience violence, assault, and abuse.
RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE, online.rainn.org & rainn.org/es).
RAINN is partnered with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country and operates the Safe Helpline for the Department of Defense. RAINN also carries out programs to prevent sexual violence, help survivors, and ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice.
If you or or someone you know is experiencing sexual abuse or relationship violence RAINN is a 24/7 resource for you. There is help. You are not alone.
