February is National Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month!

Every February, advocates around the country raise awareness about teen dating violence. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), almost 1.5 million high school students in the United States experience physical abuse from their dating partner.
Steps to End Domestic Violence recently spoke with local news station WCAX about the issue.
If you are a survivor of domestic or sexual violence, Vermont 211 is here to help. To be put in touch with the resources you need, call us directly at 211, text your zip code to 898211, or check out our Community Resource Directory.

Vermont 2-1-1 is the number to dial to find out about hundreds of important community resources, like emergency food and shelter, disability services, counseling, senior services, health care, child care, drug and alcohol programs, legal assistance, transportation agencies, educational and volunteer opportunities, and much more.


2-1-1 is not an emergency number like 9-1-1, nor is it directory assistance like 4-1-1.


2-1-1 is your first step toward solving everyday problems or

when you are facing difficult times.

It’s a free service. It’s confidential. It’s 24/7.
