PLEASE INFORM US ABOUT MISSING HOTLINES & HELPLINES
Our mission is to provide everyone in the United States in need of a hotline or helpline service with easy access to all options that best matches their needs
We know that there are many hotlines and helplines which we have not added to our directory yet.
If you see that were missing a hotline or helpline that you know of, we ask that you kindly provide us with information about the missing service, so that we can add it to our directory.
PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO #4HELP
Our secondary mission is to offer hotlines and helplines an open forum to discuss and encourage hotline and helpline agencies to work collaboratively. There are thousands of agencies offering hotline and helpline services, yet there is no entity or group that oversees our industry.
We believe that considering the size, importance, amount of people we serve and financial impact that hotline and helpline agencies have, an organized and overarching entity should be established with limited powers to regulate or at the very least organize our basic services.
For example, we believe there should be a voluntary [or mandatory] registration process for hotlines and helplines. The process could begin with agencies volunteering basic information about their services: [EI#, corporate name, address, services provided, phone number (or short code for texting services) and URL].
Once that information is organized, volunteers could be appointed to a board of directors for this entity and working committees could be established for gathering limited data from each agency, such as statistics regarding amount of callers served and relevant financial information for running industry-wide reports. Our data can be made available to researchers, providing us with the opportunity to have independent research about many different areas
This is why we are offering to maintain the first voluntary Registry of Hotlines and Helplines. We propose hosting this first registry at www.helpunited.org. We claim no special skill or ability that would make us the right organization to host this registry, other than we are interested, we have the beginnings of the registry within our #4Help Directory and we are willing to do the work.
