In March the National Center for Victims of Crime introduced the DC Victim Hotline, a free and confidential resource for anyone affected by crime in the District. Hotline staff are trained to work with victims of all types of cimes including, but not limited to: sexual assault, stalking, domestic violence, hate crimes, elder abuse, financial fraud, and homicide. The hotline is designed to support callers with information about their rights and referrals to community based organizations that provide such services as counseling, advocacy, and legal advice. The hotline is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with interpreters available to support more than 200 languages.
