What Support Services are Available to Me?

If you have been, or think you may have been sexually assaulted recently:

  1. Go to a safe location away from the perpetrator.

  2. Call your Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC).

  3. The 24/7 DoD Safe Helpline also provides assistance. Users have three ways to access their services - "click, call or text" for confidential support, available 24/7 worldwide.

    Click - Logging on to for live, one-on-one confidential help with a trained professional.

    Call - Calling the hotline at 1-877-995-5247 allows users to speak with a trained staff member for personalized advice and support to military and/or civilian resources.

    Text - Texting a location or zip code to 55-247 (inside the U.S.) or 001-202-470-5546 (outside the U.S.) allows users to receive contact information for the SARC.

If you or someone you know has been sexually assault and you need assistance, please follow these guidelines to preserve all evidence of the assault:
