We know that time doesn’t stop for women and families experiencing abuse. We know that you may need to call us at any time of the day, or whenever you happen to have the privacy to reach out. We know that you have questions about leaving an abusive relationship, finding out what your options are, and how to keep safe. We know it’s hard to know where to start, and we are here for you 24/7. Here’s everything you need to know about the HWP Crisis Line.
Who can call the crisis line?
Women (of any age) who are experiencing abuse (of any type), or who think they MIGHT be experiencing abuse – We will believe you, and we can help.
Family, friends and co-workers – If you are worried about someone in your life and don’t know what to do to help, call us!
What happens if I call the crisis line?
You will be directly connected to one of HWP’s wonderful, trauma-informed Crisis Intervention Counsellors.
The counsellor will ask if you are safe in that moment, and will listen and believe your experience.
The counsellor will guide you through the options available to you in terms of both in-shelter or community outreach support.
When can I call the crisis line?
Halton Women’s Place and our Crisis Line are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You can reach out to us whenever you have a safe moment for yourself.
You can also reach us online with HWP Chat (haltonwomensplace.com/chat), when you are unable to call, or want to connect with us in a different way.
