Sexual Assault Response Network of Central Ohio (SARNCO).


(614) 267-7020

If you call RAINN from the Columbus or Central Ohio area, you will be transferred to SARNCO's hotline. I have had almost completely good experiences with calling them. They will also send you free books on recovery if you call their hotline and identify as a survivor or a secondary survivor.
