CAMPAIGN: Connecting Business to Cause

CONTENT: Blog

Helping troubled youth contact Boys Town in ways that are comfortable for them and offering effective assistance in serious, even life-threatening, situations is the overall goal of the Boys Town National Hotline.  Accredited by the American Association of Suicidology and Contact USA, and a member of Child Helpline International and the North American Alliance of Child Helplines, the Boys Town National Hotline and its extended services have been answering the call for help for more than 25 years, providing immediate, professional and compassionate assistance to children and parents.

One of the most critical needs the Hotline meets involves teens who have decided to hurt themselves or take their own lives, but who at the last minute reach out to Boys Towns’ Crisis Counselors for help. Thanks to a variety of support services offered by Boys Town, including The Boys Town National Hotline (1-800-448-3000), YourLifeYourVoice.org website created by the hotline, and the Hotline’s newest innovation, a Texting Service, Boys Town prevented more than 500 suicides in 2014.
