Helping America's Most Vulnerableā„¢

Behavioral Health Services

Crisis can affect anyone at anytime. The need for emotional support or referral assistance is something most individuals encounter at some point in their lives.

Crisis Services: Volunteers of America 24 Hour Crisis Line offers emotional support and crisis intervention to  individuals in crisis or considering suicide. In addition to the 24 Hour Crisis Line, we also offer crisis services through our Care Crisis Chat. Our chat  service offers an outlet for people that prefer communication online rather then by telephone. Call 1-800-584-3578 or chat now.

For Crisis Chat Assistance after our service is closed, please visit this 24-Hour Crisis Chat.
