All services provided by the Portland Women's Crisis Line are free and confidential.
The Portland Women's Crisis Line operates a 24-hour state-wide hotline for victims/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, and concerned family, friends and community members. Hotline advocates are available to provide crisis intervention and connect callers with local domestic violence and sexual assault/rape service providers.
The hotline also serves as the centralized domestic violence crisis line for the Tri-County area (Multnhomah, Clackamas, and Washington counties). Advocates are able to provide information and referrals for area domestic violence services, including shelter and emergency assistance.
Sexual assault advocates are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to support survivors of rape, sexual assault and abuse, as well as their family and friends. Advocates can provide support to survivors at the hospital, during the forensic exam, and through the reporting process, and can accompany them to any court hearings or trials. They are able to provide information regarding law and process, medical follow-up, counseling and support group opportunities.
Advocates do not work for the hospitals, police or the District Attorney's office and will maintain total confidentiality. Advocates will not share any information without the permission of the survivor.
