WCCS provides free services and support to victims of domestic violence residing in Los Angeles County.
Our 24-hour hotline offers crisis assistance, safety planning, information, and referrals to service providers throughout Los Angeles County. Our bilingual English/Spanish operators understand the needs of families impacted by domestic violence and are here to give support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- The hotline provides immediate assistance in English and Spanish. Other languages are accommodated through a language line.
- Victims are alerted to the availability of intake services for our 45-day stay emergency shelter program and information about supportive services.
- Victims learn they can reach out for support with information and referrals for survivors and their concerned friends and family members.
- Avenues for solutions are offered through linking victims and individuals to available resources, including other shelters within the greater Los Angeles County area.
We know that victims can’t always pick up a phone, so we have launched our website where they can text us instead.
