Help is on the Line: Providing Hotline Services for Incarcerated Survivors
Please join us and the Resource Sharing Project for Help is on the Line, an exciting webinar on providing crisis hotline services to incarcerated survivors. This webinar addresses the challenges facing prisoner rape survivors who seek support, especially those who are held in rural detention facilities. Not only are crisis services far and few between, but many local programs have limited experience in — and limited funding for — giving services behind bars. We focus on how rape crisis centers can adapt their existing hotline for a correctional setting. It covers strategies for working with inmates, including how to ensure that calls are kept confidential. The webinar features JDI staff, as well as a rape crisis advocate from a rural program who has provided support to incarcerated survivors.
