24/7 Support Services
The Center offers emergency services 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Our crisis and information line is the first step in learning more, getting support and accessing our services. All calls are confidential and there is never a charge for any of our services. Trained advocates answer your call and offer supportive listening and crisis counseling. They can help you get more information, figure out next steps, safety plan and refer you to the services that can best help you.

Emergency shelter is a temporary, safe space that houses adults and their dependent family members who are fleeing an intimate partner violence situation or recovering from a sexual assault. The Center offers 24-hour emergency shelter as it is available. To connect with emergency shelter services, please call the crisis and information line to begin this process. A crisis team member will ask some questions over the phone to determine which of The Center’s programs and services would best help you as you begin your journey of safety and healing. Learn more about our emergency shelter by calling our crisis and information line or click here.
24/7 Hospital Advocacy
Our 24/7 hospital advocacy is available to anyone who receives a sexual assault forensic exam in our service area. If you go to any local hospital ER in our service region (Jefferson, Oldham, Bullitt, Shelby, Tremble, Henry, Spencer counties in Kentucky or Clark and Floyd counties in Indiana), our hospital advocates will be called to be a part of your care team. The advocate is there to accompany you during the exam (if you wish) and provides you with support and resources. Learn more about sexual assault forensic exams here.
Ride to Safety
Through a partnership with TARC free rides are available to anyone needing safe transportation to The Center. Board any TARC bus and tell the driver you need a ride to safety. The driver then will notify TARC headquarters and arrangements will be made to take you to one of our shelter locations. Visit https://www.ridetarc.org/ to find a bus stop close to you.
