If you can help more...

-- $90 ensures someone is there to listen for one two-hour shift.

-- $300 trains one person in applied suicide intervention skills, helping the greater community be suicide-safe.

-- $700 funds one school outreach program for one year, allowing us to reach hundreds of young people.

-- $1,300 enables us to recruit, train and retain one volunteer for one year, helping us to be there for more people in their times crisis.

    Your gift helps us...

  • Keep our lines open – by recruiting and training listeners and paying
    for telephones, computers and software.
  • Spread the word about suicide prevention, causes and options for those in crisis.
  • Reach into the schools to teach teenagers about suicide awareness and to
    let them know we are here for them – both by phone and text.
  • Provide a continuum of care for those in crisis, experiencing depression or
    having mental illness – filling the gaps between care or the absence of care.
  • Answer the phone and save a life

    Thank You
