Crisis Intervention

Crisis Intervention often begins with our 24-Hour Crisis Helpline, the first stop when a person reaches out at a time of crisis. In addition to finding a person who cares about their situation, a caller will find information about resources and swift intervention in the midst of a crisis.

24-Hour Crisis Helpline


Our 24-Hour Crisis Helpline is a live-voice helpline for the entire St. Louis region, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Highly-trained advocates assess safety needs, assist with safety planning, provide emergency transportation, and give referrals for medical care, shelter, legal aid, counseling, and other area resources. Our Helpline is there for adults and youth of all genders who have experienced rape, domestic or dating abuse (physical, sexual or emotional), sex trafficking, and/or childhood sexual abuse. The Crisis Helpline is also an excellent resource for friends and family members who are concerned for a loved one.

Safe Connections arranges over-the-phone interpreters to translate more than 140 languages for Crisis Helpline callers. For callers who are Deaf or hard of hearing, RELAY services are available 24/7 by dialing 711.
