Online Chat: A New Way to Connect with Our Advocates - (6/9/2020)

Rise is excited to announce our new online chat service, which is a new way for victims to reach out for assistance.  This chat service can be accessed Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm by clicking the purple "chat with us here" link in the header of our website.  This secure chat service is end-to-end encrypted, but before launching the chat, victims are taken to a page reminding them not to use this service on a device that may have been compromised with spyware or malware.

We are hopeful that this new chat service will be beneficial to victims who cannot call our 24-hour hotline without being overheard or who feel more comfortable communicating by chat than telephone.
