LGBTQ Resources Domestic Violence National/Global Resources
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) National Help Center provides vital peer-support, community connections and resource information to people with questions regarding sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Utilizing a diverse group of LGBT volunteers, we operate three national hotlines, the LGBT National Hotline, the LGBT National Youth Talkline, and the LGBT National Senior Hotline as well as private, volunteer one-to-one online chat, that helps both youth and adults with coming-out issues, safer-sex information, school bullying, family concerns, relationship problems and a lot more.
A collaboration of the NW Network of Bisexual, Trans, Lesbian and Gay Survivors of Abuse and the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs, the National LGBTQ Institute on Intimate Partner Violence creates a bridge between mainstream DV services and LGBTQ community programs and empowers local communities to create sustainable strategies that work at the local level. The LBGTQ Institute on IPV expands the capacity of individuals, organizations, governmental agencies, local communities, tribes, and tribal organizations to identify and respond to the specific and emerging needs of diverse LGBTQ intimate partner violence survivors. They inform research and policy agendas, coordinate with other Domestic Violence Resource Network members, and provide training and technical assistance to improve violence prevention and intervention efforts nationwide.
