Iowa Victim Service Call Center is a resource to victims and survivors of crime throughout all of Iowa. With staff available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, callers are given the full attention they deserve. Since inception, we have received calls from victims and survivors of many crimes, including: homicide, robbery, kidnapping, identity theft, hate crime, elder abuse, drunk driving, burglary, bullying, assault, arson, human trafficking, incest, sexual abuse as a child, sexual assault, child physical abuse, teen dating violence, domestic violence, and more.
All staff at the Call Center undergo extensive training that includes many hours of face to face and interactive trainings with both the Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault. Staff also receive training from many of the culturally specific groups from around Iowa, increasing their awareness of differing cultures and assuring that every caller receives the support they need.
If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, human trafficking, sexual violence, or any other abuse or crime, call the Iowa Victim Service Call Center at 1.800.770.1650 or text ‘iowahelp’ to 20121.
