A number of community resources are available to assist victims of domestic violence.
We established Project Safe to address the physical, emotional and social needs of patients who are at risk for or are experiencing domestic violence. Our team of highly-trained medical professionals and counselors are available to support you and help end the cycle of violence by offering domestic violence education, access to community resources and information on safety planning. We also offer a domestic violence information line to arm victims with education, access to community resources and information on safety planning.
The line, which can be reached by calling 704-614-7212, operates Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., or between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Sunday. If a caller accesses the line after hours, they can leave a message and will receive a call back. All communication is confidential.
