Just as you would call 9-1-1 for emergencies, you can call 2-1-1 for human service information and assistance. We are available 24 hours a day to listen and provide emotional support, crisis counseling, suicide prevention and information. Our human service referral database is comprehensive and up-to-date. You do not have to be in crisis to call, there is no eligibility criteria and our services are free. Skilled hotline counselors treat your call confidentially and you remain anonymous. They help you navigate through the maze of community services in a nonjudgmental manner. As a first point of contact, we serve as the gateway to other community services. Because life is 24/7 so are we!
You can also call Helpline 2-1-1 for additional information about local health service referrals.
