Our services include a 24 hour Crisis Line, one-on-one advocacy, child advocacy, victim witness services and an informational referal network. HI-Line's Help For Abused Spouses believes that every person has the right to make their own decisions. Our purpose is to provide information, advocacy and/or support regarding those choices. Crisis Intervention: Hi-Line's Help provides a 24-hour crisis line. The crisis line volunteers answer the incoming calls, obtain information from the caller such as first name, phone # and if the person is safe. The volunteer then contacts an advocate who will respond as quickly as possible in contacting the caller back. One-on-One Advocacy: A personal advocate will assist in any way possible providing support, suggesting possible options, making referrals to other assistance programs, (Department of Family Services, Office of Human Services, Health Departments, etc.), helping with transportation, seeking shelter or a safehome, and assisting in filing court papers such as orders of protection. Advocates also offer emotional support at a time when it is needed the most. Child Advocacy: Provides a safe environment for children.
