Do you feel alone or depressed? Anxious and stressed?
If you live in the Northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, then help is just a phone call away.
Since 1970, Concern Hotline, Inc. has provided round-the-clock hotline support to anyone in need, and we are the area's only crisis intervention, suicide prevention, and information and referral hotline.
Our mission is to comfort and calm community members experiencing stress or crisis by providing a trained, compassionate listener. Whether you're a single mom struggling with too much responsibility and too little support, or a teenager who feels like an outcast, Concern Hotline is here for you.
Any time of the day or night you can talk to a caring, supportive, non-judgmental Hotline listener. We do what no other program in the area does: we listen. We listen to your troubles and stresses, we hear your stories of hardship, and we bear witness to your struggle to live a happy, healthy life.
Our services are anonymous and confidential, and available to anyone in need. We will not ask your name, tell you what to do, or judge you. We will simply listen.
We listen. We care. We are Concern Hotline.
*** Our listeners are not trained professionals. In the case of an emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
“The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die.”
~ Edward "Ted" Kennedy
