24-Hour Crisis Hotline
Our crisis hotline, 540.639.1123, is available 24-hours a day with trained crisis intervention staff and volunteers answering all calls. Translators are available via a language interpretation and translation service for our non-English-speaking callers. People who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing can access our hotline by using Virginia Relay (711).
The Women’s Resource Center provides a 24-hour emergency response system for victims of sexual and domestic violence. When requested, Emergency Advocates meet victims at hospitals, law enforcement agencies, and other public locations (universities/college campuses, K-12 schools) in the New River Valley.
Specially trained in trauma-informed care, Emergency Advocates assist women, men, and children immediately following a crisis. Advocates provide emotional support, information, options, and follow-up services to victims and their loved ones, and remain with a victim for as long as needed.
The Women’s Resource Center offers temporary emergency housing for adults and children who live in the New River Valley and are fleeing intimate partner violence. Our shelter is a comfortable, attractive home with facilities for 26 women and children. We also provide shelter for men and LGBTQ+ individuals.
Families who leave the emergency shelter and desire a supportive living environment also have the option of applying for transitional housing apartments before stepping out on their own.
