With Tori Amos on the advisory board, Rachel Bilson & Kevin Smith lending their support, being named one of “America’s 100 Best Charities” by Worth Magazine, and having just honored the first one million callers who have received help from the National Sexual Assault
Hotline, I’d say RAINN is definitely on the radar!

Now the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) is proud to launch
the pilot phase of their National Sexual Assault Online Hotline. This is an essential lifeline for sexual assault survivors who may not be ready or have restrictions making a connection via a telephone line.

After months of collaboration with leading security software designers, RAINN developed a privacy-protected instant messaging format for online communication. Survivors can communicate in real-time with trained crisis support volunteers with the confidence of knowing that no trace or transcripts are stored. Furthermore, a tutorial is given on clearing private data from their personal computer after an online visit.

During its pilot phase the online hotline hours are Monday through Friday, from 4pm to 6pm ET, eventually becoming a 24/7 sanctuary. For
more information regarding their online counseling, how you can volunteer and other ways RAINN offers support, visit their website at
