Are you frightened or just confused about what’s happening in your relationship?
Concerned about a friend or family member? Not sure where to turn or who to ask for help?
That’s what we’re all about. The first step to receiving help is to connect with one of our advocates, either through our 24-hour help & support line or face to face at our resource center or one of our many outreach offices throughout Aroostook County.
From our free hotline to help creating a safety plan or navigating the legal system to support groups and emergency shelter or transitional housing, we hope you’ll find what you need.
You can always call our hotline – 1.800.439.2323 – any time, day or night.
Help & Support Line
We provide 24-hour support for anyone who has been affected by abuse and violence on our free and confidential hotline at 1-800-439-2323. We are here to listen to your experiences to help YOU decide what is best for YOUR life. We will offer you options and accurate information, never judgment.
Just a heads up!
On nights and weekends, our calls are fielded by our answering service. When you call, a worker will ask for your name and number so that one of us can call you back within the next ten minutes. You can give a fake name if you don’t feel comfortable using your real one. When we call you back, it will be from a private or unknown number as a safety precaution. If you cannot wait for a call back, ask the answering service to transfer or “patch” you through to an advocate directly.
Face to Face
If you or someone you care about is experiencing or being affected by abuse and violence, you may prefer to meet with one of our advocates in person. We are here to listen to your experiences to help YOU decide what is best for YOUR life. We will offer you options and accurate information, never judgment.
Our resource center in Presque Isle is open Monday through Friday, 8:00AM – 4:00PM. You are welcome to walk in with or without an appointment.
Additionally, we have outreach offices in Houlton, Madawaska, and Fort Kent where face-to-face appointments can be made by calling the office nearest you. If you are unable to get to any of these locations and still wish to schedule a face-to-face meeting, call us! We can often problem-solve other options to fit your reality.
