Crisis Line

24-Hour Help Line

TTY 847-249-6557

Breaking free from a life threatened by violence often begins with the first courageous step of calling A Safe Place's 24-hour Help Line.

Staff and trained volunteers offer immediate counseling and support to survivors of domestic abuse using our dedicated crisis lines and TTY number for hearing impaired survivors of domestic violence.

Once a caller's immediate safety is established, she is encouraged to tell her story so that her pain and fears can be validated.

She is then assisted in exploring options available to her, including the shelter and other programs of A Safe Place.

If you would like more information about A Safe Place's 24-hour help line and other services, please call us at 847-249-4450 or email us at
