The Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) is a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. that operates a national toll-free hotline for victims of sexual assault. RAINN was founded by singer/songwriter Tori Amos (who is herself a rape survivor) and was funded with initial grants from die Atlantic Group and the Warner Music Group. RAINN's hotline (800-656-HOPE) began operating on July 26, 1994. Over 4,000 victims called the hotline in its first thirty days. In cooperation with 615 rape crisis centers across the country, RAINN's hotline has already helped more than 108,000 survivors of sexual assault.
