Get Help

If you are in immediate danger, call 911.

If you need assistance, one of HCWC’s trained volunteers or staff members is available to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling our HELPline number: (512) 396-HELP (4357) or (800) 700-HCWC (4292).

If you are outside of HCWC’s service area of Hays County and Caldwell County and need a referral to your closest Domestic Violence Program, you can call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) twenty-four hours a day, 7 days a week.

Safety Tips:

  • If you share a phone with your abuser or your abuser has access to your phone, call HCWC or the hotlines listed on this website from a pay phone or other safe number where your calls cannot be tracked.
  • Don’t leave HCWC materials including information packets, brochures and safety plans in a place where your abuser might find them.
