Sexual assault victims can call toll-free hot line

January 03, 1995

The Howard County Sexual Assault Center has joined America's first nationwide toll-free hot line for victims of sexual assault: 1-800-656-HOPE.

The number is operated by the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, a Washington-based nonprofit organization.

When callers dial the toll-free number, they are connected to the nearest rape crisis center.
