NEW! Through a pilot, we’re able to offer immediate support online or over text.
Just like our 24 Hour Support Line, immediate support is available to survivors, their friends, families, co-workers, and classmates.
How does it work?
The online chat can be accessed through SACHA’s website, on the Home page. The texting number is 647-977-5908. It’s a Toronto number till December only, but no worries, it is us! For the online chat to work, please ensure that you have Flash enabled on your browser.
At this point it’s a pilot with the Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres, from June to December 2017; but we hope to be able to extend this service beyond December 2017.
Currently support through online chats and texting is available:
- Mondays 6pm-midnight
- Fridays 8pm-2am
The awesome supportive listening we offer on our 24 Hour Line = 905.525.4162 – is always there for survivors and their supporters too!
Tell us a little about yourself and your zine/project/distro.
Howdy, my name is Elvis and I make a comics zine called “Homos in Herstory.” It’s an exploration of our mysterious queer past, through comix! Lots of historical funfacts are involved.
