There are a variety of support services available to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault on the Internet. Please keep safety in mind as you are using these resources. Many of the message and discussion boards can be accessed by anyone on the Internet.
Never post your real name or contact information to a chatroom or message board.
Their mission is to support, empower, validate, and educate survivors, as well as their families and supporters.
After a Houston, Texas television station KPRC reported on chat room names such as "Girls 13 And Under For Older Guys" and "Girls 13 And Up For Much Older Men" that were aimed at sex with children, the publicly held business Yahoo!
was compelled to act by shutting down all chat rooms created by users and stopped the ability to create new user chat rooms.
Online chat rooms created by the company itself are still in service and use.
