If you are in an immediate emergency or unsafe place, please call 911.
If you have experienced any kind of assault or abuse, it is most important to know that it is not your fault, and that there are resources available to help you. Try to surround yourself with people that you trust and find a safe place to stay when reaching out for services.
Safer is available during business hours at 805-756-2282, and RISE is available 24 hours a day at 855-886-7473
Depending on your experience, we have put together some guidance of how to move forward after an incident. This is not to replace the advice of legal or medical professionals, but hopefully can offer a starting point to the healing process.
