River City Domestic Violence Center provides a wide range of services that are specially coordinated for each survivor's individual needs. The main objective of River City is to provide immediate shelter and safety for victim/survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and child abuse. Leaving a dangerous situation at home can be a very scary time. Our staff is here to help in this transition. During a survivor's stay at River City our advocates work to help them and their family to find stability.
Help is just a phone call away. An advocate is on stand-by to provide Crisis Intervention. Our 24-hour Crisis Hotline for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking can be reached at: (605) 665-1448
