1-800-897-LINK

The LINKLine exists as a 24/7 free service to support anyone who has concerns about their own  interpersonal relationship or the relationship of someone they care about. We accept calls from everyone: survivors, friends & family, coworkers, and even professional support persons like social workers, healthcare professionals, and clergy. The goal of the “LINK”Line is to link people to resources in their communities for ongoing support.

Every call to the LINKLine is anonymous and confidential, so you can trust that whatever is said stays between you and the advocate you talk to during the call. Each advocate is trained to answer calls in an empathetic, trauma-informed way. The advocates will listen to each caller without judgment, and offer support to meet the individual needs of each caller and their situation.

If you or someone you know has any questions about unhealthy relationships or abuse, please reach out to our LINKLine at 1-800-897-LINK (5465).

(If LINKLine advocates are experiencing an increased call volume, calls will be forwarded to the National Domestic Violence Hotline.)

Deaf / Hard of Hearing Resources

All Deaf individuals, including those with any type of hearing loss, need a safe environment. People with hearing loss are at higher risk of being long-term victims of domestic violence and sexual assault due to the lack of accessible services and resources.

Sego Lily (SLCAD) provides direct services to victims (finding safe shelter; legal advocacy, counseling, support groups, parenting classes, etc.), support to survivors, inservice training to professionals, education to the Deaf community, and collaboration with service providers.

Native American Resources

Violence Against American Indian and Alaska Native Women

In the State of Utah, there are 8 federally recognized Tribes. Each Sovereign Nation is located in rural and often isolated areas in Utah. The geographic location of these Nations, as well as a lack of accessible resources available for Native communities, contribute to the barriers that victims face as they seek domestic violence support.

We are fortunate in Utah to have a Tribal sister coalition, Restoring Ancestral Winds (RAW), who is the tribal DV/SA coalition representing the 8 federally recognized Tribes in Utah. RAW provides technical assistance, education, and training for Tribal Nations and Native urban communities in the Great Basin region. They are the coordinating agency in addressing the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, leading the statewide task force to create awareness, build comprehensive and holistic change, and protect Native communities.

Restoring Ancestral Winds:

Restoring Ancestral Winds mission is to support healing in our indigenous communities. We will: advocate for healthy relationships; educate our communities on issues surrounding stalking, domestic, sexual, dating and family violence; collaborate with Great Basin community members and stakeholders; honor and strengthen traditional values of all our relations.  We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

ICWA (Indian Child Welfare Act)

The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) of 1978 is Federal law that governs the removal and out-of-home placement of American Indian children. The law was enacted after recognition by the Federal Government that American Indian children were being removed from their homes and communities at a much higher rate than non-Native children. ICWA established standards for the placement of Indian children in foster and adoptive homes and enabled Tribes and families to be involved in child welfare cases. Find resources related to ICWA on their website.

Culturally-Specific Advocacy

Culturally-specific community-based-organizations address community-specific types and dynamics of gender-based violence. These organizations work to counteract various forms of stigma within communities and discrimination within systems, while recognizing the importance of connection to community and the healing value of cultural and/or spiritual practices. They work to collaborate with systems so the systems are not barriers but gateways to services, while identifying and addressing historical trauma, especially as related to these systems.

Assisting Immigrants

Resources for Immigrant Survivors:

For immigrant survivors of domestic and sexual violence getting help can be difficult as they often face additional barriers to accessing the support they need, including cultural and language barrier, misinformation about their rights, and difficulty in navigating complex systems (immigration, housing, benefits, health care, legal, etc.).

Service providers who understand a survivor’s culture can help the survivor work toward safety and stability in a way that meets the survivor’s unique needs. Many service providers employ staff who are bi-lingual and/or bi-cultural, in order to address the barriers immigrants may face when accessing services, as well as to promote the comfort and safety of immigrants seeking services.
