COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A new, statewide helpline for survivors of sexual and relationship violence will soon be launching in Ohio.
Attorney General Mike DeWine is joining the Sexual Assault Response Network of Central Ohio to announce the initiative on Friday in suburban Columbus. The network is operating the helpline, which is funded with a $1.2 million grant provided by DeWine’s office.
The network is a sexual violence intervention and prevention program serving Franklin County, which includes Columbus.
