Domestic violence is a national problem that impacts our communities, neighbors, coworkers, friends and family members. We believe our network and technologies - and our people - can be a part of the solution.
Through Hopeline® from Verizon, we connect survivors of domestic violence to vital resources, fund organizations nationwide and protect the environment.
