Day League

Thriving

Day League is committed to providing services to all Metro Atlanta residents impacted by sexual assault. The majority of the contacts made with the Center are initiated through a 24-hour crisis hotline. There are a variety of call types that come into the crisis line. A sampling of the types of calls received includes survivors calling immediately post-rape, loved ones needing support and information or community members wanting general information. The volunteer’s role is to provide support to these callers using empathy, understanding, good listening skills and factual information. The Center uses generally only female volunteers to staff the crisis line (over 90% of our survivor calls are from women); however, men are encouraged to become trained in crisis techniques to assist both male survivors and male friends and family members on an as needed basis. Please live in the Georgia area as background checks have to be done in Georgia. Thank You!

Mission Statement

58-2005078 Day League provides direct services, prevention education, and advocacy for youth and adult survivors of sexual assault, their families, and the community as a whole. Day League ensures survivors of sexual violence forge a new beginning, not only to survive their ordeal, but also to become strengthened by it.

Description

In 1989, the Dekalb Rape Crisis Center (DRCC) was established to combat the devastating effects of rape and sexual assault by empowering survivors and educating the community. With its dedicated specialists and passionate volunteers, DRCC became a safe place for survivors to find quality support throughout their journey.

In 2013, the Dekalb Rape Crisis center changed its name to Day League. The name celebrates the new beginning that each survivor meets daily through collective support in a safe, nurturing environment. Day League embraces the potential that each day holds for survivors to grow stronger and thrive.

Day League confronts the problem of sexual assault in metro Atlanta by providing care for survivors from initial crisis to lasting recovery. Since 1989, Day League (formerly known as the DeKalb Rape Crisis Center) has taken a holistic approach toward its services to walk with survivors through every step of their journey. These services include a 24-hour crisis intervention hotline, hospital accompaniment, individual counseling, support groups, bilingual care, legal advocacy, prevention, and awareness education. By focusing on full-term trauma recovery, Day League works to ensure that survivors will thrive.
