Friendship Home helps victims of domestic violence find physical and emotional safety. Offering them a chance to change their lives when things are at their worst – to be hope they can feel. If you or someone you know are experiencing domestic violence or you would like to help, please contact us.

If you need to speak with an advocate, please call:

Crisis Line and Safety Planning, 402-437-9302
Deaf or Hard of Hearing, 402-261-0545

Advocacy and support are available to victims of domestic violence 24 hours a day through Friendship Home’s crisis line. Advocates engage with each caller at the point they are at in the process of assessing their relationship. Friendship Home staff respect that each survivor knows their situation best and that they have the right to decide what happens next. We understand that domestic violence is a complex issue, and there are often multiple reasons a victim cannot “just leave” an abusive relationship. Advocates work with each victim to assess current risk and determine options and resources.

We are here to help you, and we will attempt to help in whatever way we can. We understand that seeking help is not easy; we are always here to aid you in doing so.
