Rape Abuse & Incest National Network - National Sexual Assualt Hotline

What exactly is RAINN?

RAINN (the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) operates America's only national sexual assault hotline: 1.800.656.HOPE.

RAINN's hotline is a free and confidential partnership of more than 860 crisis centers across the country.

One out of every six American women have been the victims of an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime. About three percent of American men -- a total of 2.78 million men-have experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime. About 44% of rape victims are under age 18. Three out of every twenty victims (15%) are under age 12.
