What is the National Sexual Assault Online Hotline?
The National Sexual Assault Online Hotline is a free, confidential, secure service that provides live help over the RAINN website.

Who should use the Online Hotline?

  • Victims of sexual assault (whether their attack took place today or decades ago)
  • Spouses, family members, and partners of victims
  • Friends of victims

What services does the Online Hotline provide?

  • Crisis intervention and support
  • Answers to your questions about recovering from sexual assault
  • Information about medical issues
  • Explanations of the criminal justice system, and what to expect when you report the crime to the police
  • Referrals to resources in your area
  • Information for family and friends of victims

How does it work?
It works just like instant messaging. You’ll go into a private session with a trained volunteer and communicate, live, by typing messages back and forth. The service is completely anonymous, and you do not have to give your name or any personal information.
