The Utah Sexual Violence Crisis Line is a safe, confidential service offered to sexual violence survivors anywhere in the state. When you call the 24-hour sexual violence crisis line you’ll be routed to a local UCASA affiliate organization in your area based on the first six digits of your phone number. 

The dedicated advocates and providers who answer calls to the hotline are our partners, affiliates, and member programs. Many of the advocates who staff the phone lines are trained by us and are part of the larger UCASA family. In order to be allowed to take calls from the crisis, line affiliates must agree to uphold strict confidentiality standards to protect the privacy of every caller.

Professional staff and certified volunteers provide 24-hour care and support to sexual violence survivors, their loved ones, and their wider network of supporters and allies in a variety of languages. 

Calling the 24-hour Crisis Line gives you access to a range of free services including: 

- Confidential support from a trained advocate
- Support finding a local health facility that is trained to care for survivors of sexual assault and offers services like sexual assault forensic exams
- Someone to help you talk through what happened
- Local resources that can assist with your next steps toward healing and recovery
- Referrals for long term support in your area
- Information about the laws in your community

kitline-01.pngAcross the nation, the backlog of sexual assault kits have caused concern and inspired significant changes to the way that sexual assault kits are tracked and cared. Since 2014, Utah has been proactively working to test all unsubmitted sexual assault kits and has made significant efforts to prevent sexual assault kits from accumulating in the future.

Utah is working to test all previously unsubmitted sexual assault kits and wants to provide survivors information pertaining to their sexual assault case. Those survivors who would like information about their sexual assault kit can contact the information line or email the SAKI Victim Advocate. As testing progresses, we want to provide survivors an opportunity to receive information on their own terms. 

Any survivor of a sexual assault who completed a forensic exam and is interested in the status of their sexual assault kit. Survivors may also use the information line to make specific requests about the notification process. 

The Utah Sexual Assault Kit Information Line's hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:00 am - 5:30 pm. You may Information Line after hours, please leave a message with your contact information and safe times to call. Your phone call will be returned during the next business day unless otherwise requested.

For more information, please contact Lauren DeVries, Utah's SAKI Advocate at (801) 893-1145 or ldevries@utah.gov
