Helpline for Victims of Domestic Violence
The role of the Illinois Department of Human Services’ Domestic Violence Helpline is being expanded in order to create a one stop access point for shelter needs. People experiencing domestic violence may directly call the Helpline at 1-877-TO END DV (1-877-863-6338 voice or 1-877-863-6339 TTY) and be connected to shelter through existing local domestic violence shelters or they will be connected to emergency shelter through available hotels and motels. Transportation assistance is being offered as well.
