With the closure of The Link, the phone number to access Cocoon services 24/7 will be (419) 373-1730. This new number will take effect July 1, 2018. The Cocoon has partnered with The Link, a program of Harbor Behavioral Health, for the last 13 years to answer hotline calls from survivors of domestic and sexual violence. These calls were then routed to Cocoon advocates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The new number will not affect services in any way. All callers seeking services will be immediately connected to an advocate. The Cocoon advocates will continue to provide the same excellent services to the Wood County community.
The Cocoon provides safety, healing, and justice to survivors of sexual and domestic violence. In 2017, the organization responded to 5,739 service calls and provided more than 3,100 nights of emergency, safe housing.
