We see the headlines far too often. Domestic violence stories depicting families that are destroyed by years of abuse. Or the horrifying statistics showing 1 in 5 women and 1 in 16 men besieged by sexual assault on college campuses across the country. When victims in these heartbreaking, and some times life threatening, situations need a place to turn in Wake Country, they often look to InterAct for help.
InterAct is a private, nonprofit United Way agency that provides safety, support, and awareness to victims and survivors of domestic violence and rape/sexual assault in Wake County and its 12 municipalities. The organization is driven by the belief that everyone – man, woman, and child – deserves a life free from violence and the ability to choose to live in peace.
For more than 38 years, InterAct has been providing comprehensive services for victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. InterAct provides three 24-hour crisis lines, group and individual counseling, bilingual counseling, specialized children’s counseling, case management, court and hospital advocacy, professional training, as well as Wake County’s only residential domestic violence program and North Carolina’s first community-based sexual assault forensic examination center, The Solace Center.
In addition to these services, InterAct also promotes violence-free relationships and communities through collaboration, public information, education, and advocacy. As part of this community education/outreach, the organization also provides a full curriculum of violence prevention in Wake County public schools in grades 3-12.
All of InterAct’s services are free and confidential.
