Loveisrespect, a project of the National Domestic Violence Hotline and Break the Cycle, provides 24/7 phone (1-866-331-9474), chat and text support to teens and young adults. It is the ultimate resource to engage, educate and empower youth and young adults to prevent and end abusive relationships.

A proven effective method for reaching the teen and young adult demographic, loveisrespect offers specialized services through peer-to-peer intervention. In addition to our resources designed to meet the specific needs of adolescents, we are also fostering the next generation of anti-violence advocates. Loveisrespect mobilizes parents, educators, peers and victims to proactively raise awareness on healthy dating behaviors. Through trainings, toolkits and curriculum, we are growing a new generation of community educators and advocates to advance healthy relationships and prevent future patterns of abuse.
