Anti-Violence Project 24 Hour Hotline

The New York City Anti-Violence Project (AVP) empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected communities and allies to end all forms of violence through organizing and education, and supports survivors through counseling and advocacy.

24 Hour English/Spanish Hotline: 212-714-1141
AVP encourages you to report violence that you experience or witness to our 24-hour bilingual (English/Spanish) hotline at 212-714-1141 where you can speak with a trained counselor and seek support. Hotline calls are free and confidential.

About the Hotline
AVP operates a free bilingual (English/Spanish), 24-hour, 365-day-a-year crisis intervention hotline that is staffed by trained volunteers and our professional counselor/advocates to offer support to LGBTQ & HIV-affected victims and survivors of any type of violence. AVP receives nearly 3,000 calls a year—an average of one call every three hours. Callers receive immediate crisis counseling and on-going short or long-term counseling and other supportive services, including police, court and social services advocacy and accompaniment.
