Durham Crisis Response Center (DCRC) works with the community to end domestic and sexual violence through advocacy, education, support and prevention. Services include a 24-hour, confidential crisis line for victims of domestic and sexual violence, short-term emergency shelter, hospital and court accompaniment, legal clinics with local attorneys, support groups, counseling, and referrals for job training, housing, childcare and other community services—all direct services offered to the community free of charge.
The crisis line serves as the gateway to all of the shelter and support services offered by DCRC, including case management, counseling, and legal advocacy. Trained advocates are available 24 hours a day to provide support through active listening, crisis intervention, community referrals, safety planning and emergency room accompaniment for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. All calls are confidential.
