RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE) in partnership with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country and operates the DoD Safe Helpline for the Department of Defense. RAINN also carries out programs to prevent sexual violence, help survivors, and ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice.

If you are in a situation where something has happened to you and you don’t know what to do, or who to turn to, RAINN is a wonderful place to start. They have trained professionals that you can contact who will believe you, and they will help you.

Please know that if something has happened to you that it is NOT your fault and it is NEVER too late to seek and get help to begin your healing!
