24-Hour Support Line
The W.O.M.A.N., Inc. 24-hour support line offers support via peer counseling, safety planning, and referrals for needed resources. Very often our support line is used as a safe space for survivors to openly share details of their lives including the abuse they survive. As peer counselors, our role is to support them. Many times a survivor just needs someone to listen without judging, to help them better understand their experience, and to validate their feelings and choices.
On our support line, we also connect with family and friends of survivors. Seeing someone you love be harmed is difficult and often times, a survivor’s loved ones don’t know what to do or how to best support the survivor in their life. It is also common for people who love a survivor to experience a great deal of emotional distress. We are here for you as well as the survivor you love.
You can call us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at:
Additional domestic violence resources & W.O.M.A.N., Inc. materials can be found here.
Due to our location and capacity, the following programs prioritize survivors living in SF. If you don’t reside in SF, are a survivor and would like assistance finding similar services where you live, feel free to call our support line and we can provide referrals.
For many survivors of domestic violence, individual psychotherapy provides an excellent environment for healing and growth. We offer both ongoing individual therapy and family therapy for survivors, their friends & family. Therapy services are offered in English and Spanish and are provided by trained MFT Interns and Trainees who are supervised by a licensed psychotherapist. Low-cost weekly sessions are based on a sliding scale.
If you are interested in exploring therapy as an option, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or just call our support line
Led by trained facilitators, our support groups offer a safe space for survivors of domestic violence to share their experiences with and gain insight from each other. In these groups, survivors are invited to explore their feelings, receive and offer support, and gain important tools needed to heal from the effects of violent relationships.
Peer Counseling Sessions
Working with a trained DV counselor to discuss next steps, process trauma and get referrals is often a helpful first step in a survivor’s healing process. We provide 5 free, scheduled sessions of counseling for SF residents who are survivors of DV.
