Philadelphia Domestic Violence Hotline

The Philadelphia Domestic Violence Hotline (1-866-723-3014) is a free 24-hour resource for individuals with questions or concerns about domestic violence.

Counselors trained in domestic violence provide anonymous and confidential support, including crisis counseling, safety planning, referrals to appropriate community resources, and admission to Women Against Abuse’s safe haven.

Women Against Abuse leads operations for the hotline, which is also run by Congreso de Latinos Unidos, Lutheran Settlement House, and Women in Transition. WAA counselors staff the majority of the hotline’s hours, including nights, weekends and holidays. Women Against Abuse also provides backup support at all times.

Hotline cards are available for pick-up at our administrative office upon request.

Please contact Megan Slattery for more information.
