A brand-new peer-support service is available today as part of RAINN’s commitment to supporting Spanish-speaking survivors of sexual assault. La Sala de Ayuda is a confidential chat room service that offers survivors another way to get help and support. Last year, the National Sexual Assault Online Hotline launched Spanish hotline services at rainn.org/es. RAINN’s top content is also now available in Spanish to offer survivors important information about things like the rape kit process and how to spot child abuse.
La Sala de Ayuda (Help Room), is similar to a group chat service. Up to 10 survivors will take part in each group session, which is moderated by a RAINN staff member. Participants decide as a group what topics to focus on during the session.
