CAPSA provides support services for individuals and families impacted by domestic violence, sexual abuse, or rape.
A core service is our 24-hour Support Phone Line for those who have experienced abuse or are supporting a friend or loved one.
What is the purpose of the Support Line?
CAPSA’s 24-hour Support Phone Line is answered by trained Advocates who are there to provide information and connect individuals with support services.
The Support Line is confidential. This means your information is not given to parents, family, loved ones, police, or anyone else without your consent. You are free to share what you feel comfortable with, ask questions, and get answers without being required to commit to proceeding further. The Support Line is there for support, does not require you to start any service with CAPSA.
NOTE: CAPSA is required to report instances involving elderly adult abuse or child abuse.
CAPSA can help if you are calling because you need a safe place to escape abuse, or need support helping a friend who has experienced sexual assault or domestic violence.
Who Works the Support Line?
The Support Line is answered by trained CAPSA employees who are trauma-informed and start by believing. This means they are prepared to listen to your needs and understand how best to assist, whatever the situation may be.
Our Advocates specialize in dealing with diverse needs and provide access to specific resources to help you overcome the challenges you are facing.
Who the Support Line is Designed to Help?
The Support Line is designed to be a resource for everyone in the community. Individuals can reach out for themselves or loved ones, and other organizations often refer clients through it. Police who respond to domestic violence calls use it to get support, ask questions and connect those who need help, directly to CAPSA.
If you are fleeing sexual assault or domestic violence and need support, or you are supporting a friend or loved one recovering from it and want to know how you can best help them, please call CAPSA’s Support Line at 435-753-2500.
