Call (808) 524-7273
If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, call us for help. Trained SATC counselors are on duty 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to provide confidential support, information, and advocacy on the phone.
How does the Sexual Assault Hotline work?
When you dial 808-524-7273 during business hours, a receptionist will connect you to one of the SATC's crisis counselors. After regular business hours, weekends or holidays, your call is answered by Physician's Exchange who then contacts the crisis worker on call. The crisis staff will respond directly to you.
Are hotline calls completely confidential?
All calls are anonymous and confidential unless the caller chooses to share identifying information. You always have the choice of whether or not to share your real name or phone number with counselors. We will know who you are only if you choose to tell us.
However, if you disclose a sexual assault and share identifying information with the counselor, there may be legal mandates to report certain types of abuse (such as sexual assault of a minor by a family member). The SATC is legally required to notify authorities in these situations and confidentiality is therefore waived. Speak with the counselor about any concerns regarding waivers of confidentiality.
