You are not alone. Help is available.
Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline
The Hotline provides crisis intervention and referrals to emergency housing and support services to victims of domestic violence. In addition, Hotline advocates can provide information and resources to concerned family and friends.
The Hotline is funded through a collaborative funding model with the City of Chicago’s Department of Family and Support Services.
The Network: Advocating Against Domestic Violence established an Emergency Crisis Fund for survivors of Domestic Violence to address critical gaps in the safety net for survivors. While current funding will be used to respond to issues arising from the COVID-19 crisis, we intend to maintain this funding as a support for survivors across our community.
The Fund will prioritize supports for survivors where no other funding is applicable. Examples of supports include, but are not limited to: rental assistance, educational and social supports for e-learning for clients in shelter or community emergency housing, diapers, food or groceries, supports for incarcerated survivors, emergency cell phones, or bill payment to remain in housing. Other requests will be considered.
If you or a survivor is in need of emergency funding during COVID-19 you can submit the application below via email to Emergency@The-Network.org or mail to 1 E. Wacker Dr., Suite 1630, Chicago, IL 60601 or fax: (312)527-0733
