North Carolina has a large number of rape crisis centers throughout the state that can be of help to you. These centers provide free, confidential referrals and services for sexual assault victims, survivors and their close family and friends. One of the most important services is a hotline that you can call to talk to a trained staff member or volunteer about your feelings and concerns related to the assault. Your conversations with rape crisis center staff are kept private and confidential by North Carolina law. If you are concerned about mandatory reporting to the police or to DSS, you can withhold your name and still have your questions answered in privacy.
The centers are listed below by county. Please feel free to call them and use their services, whether you are a teenager, a child or an adult; whether you are LGBT or heterosexual; whether you are a person with or without a disability; and whether you are male or female. Rape crisis centers are private, nonprofit organizations committed to helping all members of the public.
Most crisis lines are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please, don’t hesitate to call if you need help.
