  3. 3. Other Agencies That Can Help You

    1. District Attorney’s Office (DA) and Victim/Witness Assistance
      • 415-73-6450
      • After the police write the report, the District Attorney’s office decides whether to file formal charges against your partner. If the District Attorney decides not to file charges against the abuser, this is usually the end of the criminal case. If the District Attorney does file charges, you can find out more details about the case by calling the DA’s office or asking a C4DP advocate to call for you. In addition, the State of California has funds to help crime victims by paying for counseling, medical expenses, emergency needs related to the crime, and for wages you may have lost because of the crime. Ask your police department or domestic violence hotline counselor for more details.
    2. Community Violence Solutions (Rape Crisis Center)
      • 1-800-670-7273
      • Although sexual abuse and rape are common among people facing domestic violence, many find it very difficult to talk about this aspect of abuse. You may feel more comfortable talking to an advocate who deals specifically with sexual assault. Rape crisis centers have confidential 24-hour crisis lines, support groups, advocates, and other services. Any exam or treatment you can receive because of reporting sexual assault if free of charge.
