The Center for Abused Persons' (CAP) trained counselors operate the only 24-hour, seven-day-a-week hotline in Charles County. The hotline serves as a lifeline for community members who are struggling with violence at home, thinking about harming themselves, or experiencing difficulties related to mental health, drug and alcohol use, or housing. Our hotline operators can offer emotional support, problem solving and practical guidance, and referrals to additional resources.

Have you or a loved one been victimized or assaulted? Are you afraid, confused, lonely, or thinking of hurting yourself or someone else? Please call today! We're here to help!

*Our hotline operators do not have specialized healthcare licensing or education, but they have received hotline training from CAP.
