Diverse & Resilient’s Room to Be Safe Anti-Violence Program is a statewide initiative first designed to address Intimate Partner Violence in the LGBTQ community but quickly expanded to a full anti-violence program serving survivors of intimate partner, sexual, hook-up, and hate violence. Our program is designed to advocate for and work with survivors of all violence for individual counseling/advocacy, information and referral, safety planning and support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities in Wisconsin.
If you want to talk to an LGBTQ anti-violence advocate at Diverse & Resilient who can help connect you to a provider or talk through your situation with you, please call our non-emergency LGBTQ Anti-Violence Resource Line at (414) 856-LGBT (5428). This is not a 24-hour hotline. A call will be returned to you within 24 hours on weekdays and varying hours on weekends. You can ask for a phone call or text back.
