Outer Banks Hotline promotes a safe and compassionate community – that’s their mantra! They offer a 24-hour crisis phone line, shelter and support services for victims of domestic violence and their children, emergency response and advocacy for victims of sexual assault and prevention education and outreach programming. The people who operate Hotline live their credo and are always there when needed. Sometimes life can become difficult, but know that you are not alone and help is but a phone call away. Hotline has thrift stores up and down the Outer Banks that are not only great places to find clothing, antiques and household items, but they also support the Hotline cause. The listed number is the 24-hour crisis number. Open year round.
