Domestic Violence Crisis Services

Do you think you might be experiencing domestic violence? We can help.

If you are in immediate danger, please call 911.

Compass Center works with individuals who are experiencing or have experienced emotional, verbal, physical, sexual or other forms of abuse. Compass Center’s comprehensive services provide emotional and practical support to help survivors of abuse find safety and self-sufficiency for the long-term.


Our domestic violence services are free and confidential. They are also available in English and Spanish. Services are provided to people of all races, classes, religions, ethnic groups, sexual orientations and gender identities.

24-Hour Domestic violence
crisis line
Domestic violence advocates provide emotional support and discuss strategies to keep victims of abuse safe before, during, and after domestic violence incidents.
Emergency Housing
The most dangerous time for a victim of domestic violence is when they leave their abuser. In July 2020 Compass Center launched the Safe Homes, New Lives campaign to provide short-term emergency housing to Orange County survivors of domestic violence and their families. 
DV crisis support
We talk to people over the phone or in person at our office. We can also help people who are unsure if their relationship is abusive and would like to talk to someone about this.

DV Court Advocacy
Compass Center court advocates help people navigate both civil and criminal court as they take legal action to find safety and move forward with their lives. Court advocates help victims file Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
Safety Planning
Safety planning helps survivors protect themselves and their loved ones while in an abusive relationship or when they intend to leave.  Personalized safety planning is available in English and Spanish.
Please call our 24-hour hotline at 919-929-7122 if you would like to speak with an advocate about a personal plan for your daily safety. View our Brief Safety Planning sheet for some tips on safety planning.
