InterAct is a private, nonprofit, United Way agency that provides safety, support and awareness to victims and survivors of domestic violence and rape/sexual assault. InterAct also promotes violence-free relationships and communities through collaboratioin, public information, education and advocacy. InterAct is the only confidential domestic violence prevention program serving Wake County’s twelve municipalities.
In 2009, InterAct opened its new headquarters, the Family Safety & Empowerment Center in Raleigh, which brings together eight other community agencies to provide wraparound services for victims and survivors of violence and abuse.
Since 2016, the Junior League of Raleigh (JLR) has partnered with InterAct to provide educational, counseling and support services. Throughout the course of the year, JLR members join InterAct staff to work closely with the children’s services to teach healthy relationships and other life lessons to children and families affected by domestic violence.
