New Helpline to Offer Potential Clients Easy Way to Access Safe Horizon’s Community Programs

Safe Horizon, the largest victim service agency in the country, announced today a new citywide phone helpline that will make access to critical victim’s services easier at any of Safe Horizon’s Community Program sites, regardless of location.

Potential clients and those wishing to refer clients can call the Safe Horizon Community Programs Helpline (855-234-1042) from 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. Callers will benefit from immediate answers to questions and be able to schedule additional services at any of four sites across the region if needed.

Safe Horizon’s Community Programs support, educate, and advocate for victims of crime and abuse throughout New York City. Potential clients of violence can receive crisis intervention, practical and emergency assistance, information and referrals, individual counseling, access to support groups, and support through safety-focused advocacy. Yearly, more than 4,000 individuals receive support through the Community Program sites including those benefiting from related outreach in their communities.

We believe that this enhancement will enable us to provide more effective and efficient service to clients,” said Ariel Zwang, CEO of Safe Horizon. “The helpline will get people speedy attention over the phone and enable our staff to deepen relationships with clients who need more in-depth services on site.”

Any calls received outside of operating hours to the Community Program’s Helpline will be responded to within 24 hours or be redirected to Safe Horizon’s Hotline. Anyone in crisis, however, should call the Safe Horizon Hotline, (800-621-HOPE (4673), which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
