Services for Survivors of Domestic Violence

24-Hour Support Line: (415) 255-0165

There are an estimated 9,200 reported incidents of domestic violence in San Francisco each year, taking the form of physical violence, verbal abuse, and/or threats against personal freedoms. Sadly, this number does not include the countless more victims whose cases go unreported. 

For over 30 years, the Riley Center has served as a safe, welcoming environment for all survivors of domestic violence, regardless of age, race, religion, sexual orientation or marital status. Every year, we help hundreds of survivors—mothers and children—end the cycle of abuse through confidential, individualized services and support systems.

We provide options to those who feel trapped. We offer hope to those who think there is no way out.

*If you or someone you know is suffering at the hands of domestic violence, please call our 24-hour support line at (415) 225 – 0165.

For English, please call (415) 757 – 6595

We may also provide translation for other languages over the phone.
