Hope Crisis Center proudly provides advocacy, education, and confidential emergency services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault throughout Fillmore, Gage, Jefferson, Saline, Seward, Thayer, and York Counties. It is our mission to unconditionally support and serve the diverse needs of survivors as they navigate the challenges associated with domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, trafficking, and other forms of abuse. We are committed to assisting and holding space for them as they re-discover their power and move forward in their lives. We also strive to inspire our communities to action and social change, thereby eliminating the conditions that allowed violence to thrive in the first place.
24-Hour hotLine Support
We’re here, 24/7. Information, support, and confidential emergency services can be accessed through our local hotline. Call 1-877-388-HOPE (4673) to reach an Advocate near you.
We know it’s different for everyone. Individualized one-on-one advocacy and ongoing support is available for people in crisis and throughout the healing process.
Safety and support are for everyone. All services are available in English and Spanish. If a survivor speaks a language other than English or Spanish, we can network with other programs and translation services to meet their needs. In addition, immigration information and assistance are available. To reach a Spanish-speaking Advocate directly, contact the Crete office at 402-826-5727.
We believe in a future without violence. School-based prevention education, professional training opportunities, community presentations, and informational materials are available to organizations in our service area free of charge.
We know the first steps are the hardest. Emergency needs such as food, clothing, hygiene items, and housing assistance can be provided for those fleeing from abusive situations.
Information and Referrals
We can point you in the right direction. When someone has needs beyond Hope Crisis Center’s scope, we can connect them with programs and services that can help.
The legal system can be overwhelming. Protection order assistance, legal referrals, and court accompaniments are available as needed.
Sexual Assault and Medical Advocacy
Sometimes you just need someone to be there. We can be present during sexual assault exams to support survivors, advise them of their rights, and explain the process. We can also make referrals to healthcare providers (including mental healthcare providers) and accompany survivors to appointments as needed.
Temporary Emergency Shelter
Safety is the first step. Temporary shelter can be provided for survivors who are actively fleeing from dangerous situations and have no other options.
