How Events are Sorted:
First, at the top of the list: SAMHSA Disaster Helpline and similar links.
Next in the list: Bundled “All Day” Events for organizations with events happening at multiple times throughout the day and/or in many formats or locations; these are bundled into a single listing to prevent endless scrolling. Usually these offer a lookup by zip code or other criteria.
Lastly, Time-Specific Events listed by start time from 12:01am early morning to 11:59pm late night. Warmlines and places east of Oregon’s time zone tend to start earlier (e.g. 4am in Oregon is 7am in New York).
If you’ve experienced sexual or domestic violence, dating abuse, sexual harassment, or stalking, confidential advocacy is available to you. After an incident, an Embrace On-Call Victim Advocate can respond in-person to support you during medical exams and victim interviews. You should not have to face this alone. We are here to help you regain a sense of control and safety and explore the options about reporting and receiving medical care.

When you call 800.656.HOPE (4673), you’ll be routed to a local RAINN affiliate organization based on the first six digits of your phone number. Cell phone callers have the option to enter the ZIP code of their current location to more accurately locate the nearest sexual assault service provider.
Calling the National Sexual Assault Hotline gives you access to a range of free services including:
The National Sexual Assault Hotline is a safe, confidential service. When you call the hotline, only the first six numbers of the phone number are used to route the call, and your complete phone number is never stored in our system. Most states do have laws that require local staff to contact authorities in certain situations, like if there is a child or vulnerable adult who is in danger.
While almost all callers are connected directly to a staff member or volunteer at a local sexual assault service provider, a handful of providers use an answering service after daytime business hours. This service helps manage the flow of calls. If all staff members are busy, you may choose to leave a phone number with the answering service. In this case, the number will be confidential and will be given directly to the organization’s staff member for a callback. If you reach an answering service, you can try calling back after some time has passed, or you can choose to call during regular business hours when more staff members are available. You can also access 24/7 help online by visiting online.rainn.org.
Sexual assault service providers are organizations or agencies dedicated to supporting survivors of sexual assault. The providers who answer calls placed to the hotline are known as RAINN affiliates. To be part of the National Sexual Assault Hotline, affiliates must agree to uphold RAINN’s confidentiality standards. That means:
To learn more about how a provider can become an affiliate of the National Sexual Assault Hotline, visit the Sexual Assault Service Provider information page. Volunteer opportunities for the National Sexual Assault Hotline are coordinated through these local providers. Search for volunteer opportunities near you.
The National Sexual Assault Hotline was the nation’s first decentralized hotline, connecting those in need with help in their local communities. It’s made up of a network of independent sexual assault service providers, vetted by RAINN, who answer calls to a single, nationwide hotline number. Since it was first created in 1994, the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE and online.rainn.org) has helped more than 3 million people affected by sexual violence.
Before the telephone hotline was created, there was no central place where survivors could get help. Local sexual assault services providers were well equipped to handle support services, but the lack of a national hotline meant the issue did not receive as much attention as it should. In response, RAINN developed a unique national hotline system to combine all the advantages of a national organization with all the abilities and expertise of local programs. One nationwide hotline number makes it easier for survivors to be connected with the help they deserve.
Anyone affected by sexual assault, whether it happened to you or someone you care about, can find support on the National Sexual Assault Hotline. You can also visit online.rainn.org to receive support via confidential online chat.

THE FRIENDSHIP LINE
24 Hour Telephone Hotline/Warmline
The Institute on Aging’s 24-hour toll-free Friendship Line is the only accredited crisis line in the country for people aged 60 years and older, and adults living with disabilities. We also make on-going outreach calls to lonely older adults. While there are other organizations that respond to the needs of people who may be contemplating suicide, none provides the type of services that IOA’s Friendship Line offers to respond to the public health problem of suicide among the elderly. Knowing that older people do not contact traditional suicide prevention centers on a regular basis even if they are considering suicide, we created the only program nationwide that reaches out to lonely, depressed, isolated, frail and/or suicidal older adults. Our trained volunteers specialize in offering a caring ear and having a friendly conversation with depressed older adults.
The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warmline for non-emergency emotional support calls. Founded in 1973 by Dr. Patrick Arbore, Director of IOA’s Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention, and accredited by the American Association of Suicidology, Friendship Line provides round-the-clock crisis support services including:
In addition to receiving incoming calls, Friendship Line also offers outreach to eligible callers. We connect with people on a regular basis, and help monitor their physical and mental health concerns. The call-out services act as an intervention to prevent suicide in the long term by improving the quality of life and connectedness of isolated callers. Any aging adult or person living with disabilities, who suffers from depression, loneliness, isolation, anxiousness, or may be thinking about death or suicide, can benefit from completely confidential phone calls with Friendship Line volunteers. Sometimes the road to happiness begins by simply saying hello to someone who cares.

El apoyo intencional de pares (IPS, por sus siglas en inglés) proporciona un marco poderoso para crear relaciones en las que ambas personas aprenden y crecen juntas. IPS se utiliza en todo el mundo en entornos comunitarios, de apoyo entre pares y de servicios humanos, y es una herramienta para el desarrollo comunitario que honra las fortalezas y el valor innato de cada persona. ¿Por qué IPS? Los compañeros se reúnen en torno a experiencias compartidas y, a menudo, el deseo de cambiar vidas. Pero sin un nuevo marco sobre el cual construir, las personas con frecuencia recrean la “ayuda” en función de lo que se les hizo. IPS ofrece una base para hacer algo diferente. Nos enfocamos en construir relaciones que sean mutuas, exploratorias y conscientes del poder. No intentaremos “arreglarlo”, pero nos encantaría conectarnos con usted para escuchar, compartir y aprender con usted a medida que ambos avanzamos en nuestros viajes de vida. Nuestro apoyo de pares confidencial y sin prejuicios comienza con la premisa de que las personas han aprendido a dar sentido a sus experiencias y relaciones a partir de todo lo que han aprendido en sus vidas. Sabemos que esto ha llevado a muchas personas a sentirse indignas, desconfiadas e inherentemente defectuosas. Sin entender cómo nosotros, como individuos, hemos llegado a saber lo que sabemos sobre estar en una relación y el mundo que nos rodea, es probable que tengamos problemas, no solo con angustia emocional, sino también con una lucha continua cuando hay tensión en la relación. o en la propia comunidad.
Creemos que la crisis es una oportunidad para aprender. En una conversación mutua y respetuosa, los compañeros descubren juntos cómo han desarrollado sus creencias sobre sí mismos y el mundo en el que viven. Juntas, ayuda y crisis se redefinen y adquieren un nuevo significado. Cada persona tiene la oportunidad de desafiarse a sí misma para aprender cómo podría cambiar su historia traumática de victimización y crisis por una de bienestar mental.
No damos consejos ni intentamos “conseguir” que nadie haga nada. Estamos allí para escuchar y validar los sentimientos y experiencias de la persona que llama. Juntos tenemos una conversación en la que ambos nos volvemos más conscientes mientras aprendemos y crecemos juntos. Compartimos experiencias y conocimientos para descubrir formas en las que aprendemos nuevas formas de manejar nuestros sentimientos y descubrimos formas más sanas de relacionarnos con los demás. Una vez que un individuo tuvo que “hacer frente” a un problema, puede aprender a desafiar sus creencias con respecto a ese problema, tener una experiencia diferente de la situación y ya no tener que “hacer frente” porque el problema ya no existe. El uso de esta Oregon Warmline puede ayudar a las personas a disminuir la necesidad de visitas frecuentes al médico, tratamiento en la sala de emergencias, participación con la policía y la necesidad de cuidados más intensivos.

Whoever you are and whatever you may be going through, you are welcome on the Warmline! Our caring team of trained peers offers nonjudgmental and confidential peer support every day. No appointments needed! We are here for you!
Our goal is to connect with you, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. People can see more possibilities for ourselves when we connect with a compassionate peer.
Our Warmline Team members are people who have experienced life challenges – including moods, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. We know what it is like to feel big feelings or to find ourselves in moments when there seems to be little to hope for. No need to go through this alone… Give us a call! Oregon Warmline 1-800-698-2392
Intentional Peer Support (IPS) provides a powerful framework for creating relationships where both people learn and grow together. IPS is used across the world in community, peer support, and human services settings, and is a tool for community development that honors each person’s strengths and innate value. Why IPS? Peers come together around shared experiences and often a desire to change lives. But without a new framework to build upon, people frequently re-enact “help” based on what was done to them. IPS offers a foundation for doing something different. We focus on building relationships that are mutual, explorative, and conscious of power. We won’t try to “fix” you, but we would love to connect with you to listen, share, and learn with you as we both move forward in our life journeys.
Our confidential and non-judgmental peer support starts with the premise that people have learned to make meaning of their experiences and relationships out of everything they have learned in their lives. We know that this has led many people to feel undeserving, distrusting, and inherently flawed. Without understanding how we, as individuals, have come to know what we know about being in relationship and the world around us, we are likely to have trouble, not only with emotional distress, but also with a continuous struggle when there is tension in relationship or in one’s community.
We believe that crisis is an opportunity to learn. In a mutual and respectful conversation, peers discover together how they have developed their beliefs about themselves and the world in which they live. Together, help and crisis are redefined and have new meaning. Each person has the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn how they might change their trauma story of victimhood and crisis to one of mental wellness.
We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ anyone to do anything. We are there to listen and validated the caller’s feelings and experiences. Together we have a conversation in which we both become more self aware while learning and growing together. We share experience and knowledge in order to discover ways in which we both learn new ways of managing our feelings and discover healthier ways of being in relationship with others. Once where an individual had to “cope” with an issue, they may learn to challenge their beliefs regarding that issue, have a different experience of the situation and no longer have to “cope” because the issue no longer exists. The use of this Oregon Warmline may help people decrease the need for frequent doctor’s visits, emergency room treatment, involvement with law enforcement, and the need for more intensive care.
Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

Training includes active listening, best practices on the different issue-areas and various identities of the young people calling in as well as role-play scenarios to anticipate the needs of the teens calling, texting, or emailing.
