During these challenging times, Albemarle Hopeline wants to remind victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Hopeline advocates and counselors are available via phone 24 hours a day at 252-338-3011. All of Hopeline’s services are fully available during this time, including shelter, assistance filing a protective order, court advocacy and accompaniment, and counseling. If you prefer to receive services by phone, Hopeline counselors will provide that flexibility. We are also offering our support groups virtually via Zoom. If you have any questions about COVID-19 protocols, please give us a call. Both employees and clients within Hopeline offices are currently required to wear masks for everyone's safety.

Some court services may be impacted by COVID-19. You can check for court closures, find contact information for the Clerks of Court, and get other information at

If it is not safe for you to talk, you can also text-chat with advocates here during business hours (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm excluding state holidays). If you need to chat after hours, you can also utilize the National Domestic Violence Hotline or the National Sexual Assault Hotline.

For our supporters looking to provide assistance during these challenging times, Hopeline has immediate need for Lysol spray, Clorox wipes (or similar), gloves, and cloth masks for staff. Walmart or other store gift cards for clients moving out of the shelter to be able to furnish their new homes are also greatly appreciated.
