CONTACT Helpline is the only 24 hour listening, health and human service information and referral hotline for the region. Every day we talk with people, connecting them to the help they need. Last year over 41,000 residents called reaching out for help. The number one reason someone called CONTACT was for emotional support. Callers dealing with challenges such as loss of a job, death of a family member and difficulties with a life problem. Second to emotional support, caller sought assistance with housing, food and paying their utilities. CONTACT Helpline Specialists were there to assist them with their need and provide support and guidance during difficult times.
CONTACT is a non-profit organization that appreciates and depends on the community for support and help, just like our callers depend on CONTACT. Our number one need is for people you would like to volunteer time to answer the phones as people call. As a volunteer, you ensure our 24 hour services and are the front line providers of our services to the community. We are seeking businesses that would like to partner with us to help accomplish our goals and people that have financial resources they can donate.
You can be a part of a 47 year tradition of giving back to the community and making a difference one call at a time.
