Domestic violence is a national problem that impacts our communities, neighbors, coworkers, friends and family members. HopeLine provides financial support to non-profit domestic violence organizations and agencies that are committed to connecting victims and survivors to vital resources. HopeLine collects used wireless phones, chargers and accessories, and turns them into support for domestic violence awareness and prevention organizations. HopeLine phones serve as a vital link for survivors and help keep a private line of communication to family, friends and employers.
Verizon has a longstanding commitment to domestic violence awareness and prevention, which has been a philanthropic focus since 2001 through the HopeLine program. Verizon also donates wireless phones through the HopeLine program, complete with minutes and text messaging, to domestic violence shelters and non-profit organizations for use by victims and survivors. Through the HopeLine program, Verizon has donated millions of dollars, thousands of phones and numerous resources to the domestic violence prevention and awareness movement.
