You are not alone. Help is available 24/7.

COVID-19 is now characterized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization. It continues to spread globally, throughout the US, and locally. In an effort to protect the individuals and families we serve InterAct is taking the following steps:

For Victims and Survivors of Domestic and Sexual Violence

For your safety, and the safety of others, InterAct has suspended walk-in services.

We know that for everyone, home isn’t always safe. And you are not alone.

If you experience domestic violence or sexual assault during the COVID-19 pandemic, Help is available!

InterAct’s crisis counselors are available by phone 24/7 for safety planning,  advocacy, and connection to resources. Please call 919-828-7740.

If you are in immediate danger, please call 911.

For the Community

InterAct’s Pass It On stores (Fuquay-Varina and Raleigh) are closed for the time being.

We will only be accepting in-kind donations of shelf stable meals, hand soap and sanitizer, cleaning supplies, and toilet paper and paper towels. We ask that you visit our Urgent Needs List for more details.

Remember, this may be a frightening and isolating time for survivors and their children.  We know that a crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic will add additional pressures to survivors and others who are already more vulnerable to economic and health insecurity.

InterAct stands ready to help, in all times, including this health crisis.
