WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Your support of our services is more important now than ever before. In today's tight economic times, we, like many social service agencies locally and nationally, face decreases in funding. While we're working hard to address those issues, we still need help to keep the phone lines open for the many people in Kansas who reach out to us for help.
Every single day of the year, we provide life-saving counseling for people in crisis 24 hours a day. We answer that call 25,000 times a year. Every caller needs to be heard and needs the skilled, caring help we provide. That is why your donation to Headquarters really does help us save lives.
Who We Are
We are a community of Board of Directors Members, Advisors, Volunteer Counselors, and Professional Staff who are passionate about making sure that emotional support and safety are available to kids, teens, and adults. We aren't big enough to serve the world, but we sure work hard for the Douglas County community, and for the state of Kansas.

Statement on the death of Eric Harkness July 16, 2019
There is never only one reason for suicide. Suicide is the result of many factors such as mental health conditions, stress, life events, and access to lethal means. Suicide impacts all ages, all races, all genders, all ethnicities, and all socioeconomic classes. It does not discriminate.
