Resilience Can Help

We are here for you. Please reach out if you need support.

Even amid increased efforts to prevent further spread of COVID-19, we continue to be available to survivors. Please call us at 312-443-9603 or email us at info@ourresilience.org, and we will follow up with you in 1 to 3 business days.

We can help you with questions about seeking medical treatment in the ER after a sexual assault, filing an emergency order of protection, making a police report, seeking ongoing medical treatment, and understanding all of your rights and options. All of our services are free and confidential.

Programs & Services

Regardless of when and where a survivor’s journey begins—in the ER following an assault, or through a phone call for help to make sense of something that happened 20 years ago—Resilience is here every step of the way.

Through our trauma therapy program, medical advocacy, legal advocacy, and Resilience Training Institute, Resilience is here to help survivors during their time of need.
