What We Do
Following our mission to "promote a safe and compassionate community", Outer Banks Hotline not only provides immediate short-term help to individuals and families in crisis, but we help them work towards long term solutions. We make it possible for those who want to be free from violent relationships, to succeed. We make hope real.
Sexual Assault It doesn’t matter what you were wearing, what you were drinking or what you agreed to in the past, sexual assault is never your fault. If you have been assaulted, it can be difficult to know what steps to take, or what to do next. Call the Outer Banks Hotline and talk with a trained advocate who can help explain your options. Sexual violence thrives when we remain silent, so let’s talk about it.
Domestic Violence The Outer Banks Hotline operates a 9-bedroom safe house to escape domestic violence. We help prepare the paperwork for domestic violence protective orders, accompany clients to their court hearings, and connect them to legal aid and translation services. We offer a supportive presence, explain procedures, and help clients navigate the complicated legal process to get the best outcome possible.
