Economic Empowerment

Sexual violence can have a significant impact on a person’s ability to maintain economic wellbeing. HOPE Works offers economic resources and programs to help survivors regain control over their finances and meet economic goals.

Ongoing Support and Advocacy

Advocates are available to offer emotional support, and to help navigate the many systems encountered after experiencing sexual violence. Services include support with medical and mental health follow-up, housing assistance and referrals, school advocacy, support with considering legal options, and making connections to healing and recovery programs.

24/7 Crisis Hotline & Online Chatline

The HOPE Works hotline is available to sexual violence survivors and their loved ones.  Trained advocates are there to help provide resources, referrals, or to just listen. To access our hotline please call 802-863-1236.
