The “Ten to Ten” hotline is a free, confidential helpline for people who abuse or may abuse their intimate partner and want to stop. It will be the first helpline of its kind in the U.S., though similar programs reportedly exist in Australia and the U.K.
The helpline will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day, and the number is (877) 898-3411.
The project is part of a national movement working to increase non-criminal responses to intimate partner violence.
A local collaboration between Pioneer Valley planning commission, Behavioral Health Network, and Growing a New Heart is making it possible.
