The Peaceful Paths 24-hour help line has been a crucial point of contact for many members of our community seeking assistance, support and connection. Telephone support can be a lifeline for those who seek guidance and information without the need to identify themselves or travel to outreach or emergency shelter services. The help line advocates are trained to assess crisis situations, complete shelter screenings, provide domestic violence education and identify community resources for callers with great care and without judgment.
All callers are encouraged to seek safe options and continue help line contact if they feel it is effective for them. Callers looking for immediate crisis intervention during a physical altercation will be directed to 911 or the local law enforcement agency.
