The Hotline Named a 2012 Top Workplace

The Austin American Statesman named The Hotline a top workplace for 2012. This is the third consecutive year that The Hotline has been given this honor. The article cites employees’ sense of pride for helping others, the strong support system among advocates and caring leadership as reasons why The Hotline is a positive work environment.

One employee described their job satisfaction by saying, “I talk to many strong survivors and have the chance to help them reach their goals of a safe, peaceful life. They have a difficult journey and I can encourage them and reinforce their strengths.”

The write-up also included a description of the unique service The Hotline provides for families facing crisis. To read the article, please click here.

    1. Liss,

      It sounds like you’re in a very dangerous and scary situation. Reaching out today is a huge step and it’s great that you had the courage to do that. Please contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1.800.799.7233 to talk to an advocate about your options. It is completely anonymous and confidential (they won’t even ask your name) and it’s available 24/7. Please call from a safe phone when you’re partner is not around.
