Sometimes people have questions about how we can help or what happens when you call us. We've answered some questions we get often. If we don't answer your question here, please contact us anytime.
What if what happened was a long time ago?
You can still call. Some people call right away. Some people call after many years. Whenever you were hurt we will listen and give you support.
If I call, do I have to talk to the police?
No you do not have to tell the police what happened. It is up to you. We won’t tell you what to do and we are not part of the police department.
Will you tell anyone about what I tell you?
Our services are confidential, which means that we don't tell anyone what you say or that you called us. But, we are mandated reporters. That means we have to follow Maine state reporting laws. If we think you are under 18 and you tell us any information that makes us think you are being abused or neglected, we may have to share this with other adults to help keep you safe.
