Government & Transition House Association Partner on Domestic Violence Help Line
The Office for the Status of Women and the Transition House Association of Newfoundland and Labrador announced the Domestic Violence Help Line is available to the public.
This province-wide, toll free number 1-888-709-7090 will detect the region where the caller is located and immediately connect them with one of ten transition houses that are part of the Transition House Association of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The caller is then able to immediately speak with a trained professional who will assist them directly, or connect them to the appropriate service or organization in the community, including women’s centres, Violence Prevention Newfoundland and Labrador organizations, government departments, or medical and policing services.
The Domestic Violence Help Line is also fully text-enabled, which provides for an additional means for those in need to reach out for assistance.
The HelpLine will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
