Summary List of Priorities for Client Intake

Sexual violence includes sexual abuse, sexual assault, rape/date rape, and incest.  WOAR’s specially trained Hotline crisis counselors provide support, answer questions, and can provide referral guidance to the right services.

It doesn’t matter if the sexual violence happened a few hours ago, or 40 years ago.  Regardless of gender or disability, anyone who has experienced this type of trauma (or is concerned about someone who has) may call WOAR’s Hotline.

Our Hotline staff also explain and coordinate requests from Philadelphia residents for free WOAR services:  trauma-focused counseling, court accompaniment, and a wide array of education/prevention services.
