The CRC provides ancillary support services for individuals rebuilding their lives after trauma. The trauma is defined by the individual and may include divorce, loss of employment, incarceration, human trafficking, sexual assault, sexual abuse, incest, domestic violence or addiction.
SOLACE SUPPORT LINE
A warm line of support for human trafficking survivors. This is not an emergency or service line. This line is used for survivors that just need to communicate with someone via phone or text.
Often after a trauma episode, survivors need to talk through the experience, or if they are having an episode, we have trained operators staffing the line. The line is not currently monitored 24/7 but future plans to extend coverage are underway.
Call the SOLACE Support Line 833-775-8255
