An advocate will respond to you as soon as possible (usually within 20 minutes).

Note: Keep in mind that VP technology continues to change and improve. Sometimes one VP may not be compatible with another VP. If you call our hotline and are unable to connect or leave a message, we encourage you to contact us below  and we can arrange a VP meeting from there, if preferred.

We understand that it is not always safe to make a crisis call using VP.  However, when possible, the VP number is the best way to reach us after business hours. You can use the contact form below if you need to, but we may not respond quickly.

DeafLEAD is the only organization in the nation to provide statewide direct services to Deaf and hard of hearing victims of crime.
