Abuse Victim Hotline, Inc. was founded in August 2006. One hundred percent of the money donated to Abuse Victim Hotline, Inc. is used to run business operations. Abuse Victim Hotline, Inc. is run by volunteers.
The Abuse Victim Hotline, Inc. offers preliminary support to victims of abuse via our toll-free hotline and confidential email service.
If our volunteers cannot help a victim or friend/loved one of a victim directly, we will do our best to point them in the right direction.
Abuse Victim Hotline, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
Agency Mission Statement
We have access to an extensive national database of free/low-cost local services and resources specifically geared towards servicing victims of abuse. Our goal is twofold: to initially comfort victims and to then guide the victim to the proper service or resource that is just right for them. Our agency is unique in that it is designed to fill the gap between the victim and the proper agency to serve the victim.
By applying our specialized expertise in the areas of law and psychology to each individual case and developing an understanding of a victim's specific concerns through our personal and private communication technology, we are able to provide personal guidance through preliminary legal and psychological support. Once our support and guidance system is properly in place, we can direct our client to the most suitable local service. After the referral, we remain in contact with the client at his or her discretion.
Please Note: For the safety of our clients, our hotline is operated from different locations and we change these locations daily. We only maintain our administrative offices at 500 Beach Street, Revere, Massachusetts; NO services are rendered on site. For the safety of our staff and volunteers, potential and existing clients should NOT visit our administrative offices.
