Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline
Our DV Hotline provides crisis safety planning and referrals to emergency housing and support services to victims of domestic violence in Illinois. In addition, Victim Information Resource Advocates can provide information and local 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. We intend to maintain this funding as a support for survivors across our communities.
The Fund will prioritize supports for survivors where no other funding is applicable. Examples of supports include, but are not limited to: one months rental assistance, educational and social supports for e-learning for clients in shelter or community emergency housing, diapers, basic necessities, supports for incarcerated survivors, emergency bill payments to remain in housing, or transportation. Other requests will be considered.
