Finding Help

If you have ever been the victim of sexual violence, there is help. There are people who will listen to you and understand your experience.

Florida has laws specifically designed to protect the elderly from physical abuse and neglect. It is your right to be safe.

Report abuse of the elderly to Florida's abuse hotline at: 1-800-962-2873.

In emergencies, or when you need to talk with someone in your community about safety, call the police by dialing 911.

Someone you trust may be helpful to talk to. You can also contact your local rape crisis center. They will have information and resources available to you and will help you create a healing plan that meets your individual needs.
