Where can I find additional resources?

We list a lot of military-specific and veteran-specific resources on our National Organizations - Military page. For example, there is a link to the Department of Defense (“DoD”) Safe Helpline (877-995-5247), which offers crisis support service for members of the DoD (military) community affected by sexual assault. It provides live, one-on-one advice, support, and information to the worldwide DoD community over the phone or through a live-chat feature. The service is anonymous, secure, and available 24/7 – providing victims with the help they need, anytime, anywhere.
