Legal Aid for Survivors of Sexual Assault (LASSA) Hotline

Essential needs concerning safety, privacy, access to health services, immigration issues, and family arrangements frequently arise after sexual assault. If you've been assaulted, LASSA attorneys can guide you through legal options to address those needs.  

Attorneys answer all calls. Callers can remain anonymous and may reach out even if they have not reported to law enforcement. TLSC and LASSA stand with all survivors, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, in their pursuit of safety and justice.  

LASSA is a statewide network of legal aid organizations in Texas that work collaboratively to serve survivors of sexual assault.
