Wireless Phones and Technologies Offer a Lifeline for Domestic Violence Victims in an Emergency

hopeline_logo

That is why NNEDV has partnered with the Verizon Wireless HopeLine program. The HopeLine program collects no-longer-used wireless phones and equipment in any condition from any service provider. Used phones are then either refurbished or recycled.

With the funds raised from the sale of the refurbished phones, Verizon Wireless donates wireless phones and airtime to victims, and provides funding and other contributions to nonprofit domestic violence shelters and prevention programs across the country.
