Borrow A Cell Phone

Verizon Wireless´ HopeLine program collects unused cell phones and gives a limited supply of reconditioned phones to local domestic violence programs to be used by survivors of domestic violence. These free cell phones may be provided to you for a restricted time.

They are intended to be used in emergency situations to call 911, to stay in contact with your local domestic violence program and to make other calls like your employer, potential landlords, utility companies, police, court staff, doctors, school staff, etc. necessary to help rebuild your life. Every local domestic violence program in California has a process in place for lending out the free phones, so call them for details.
