ORGANIZATION: Parents Helping Parents

Logo w/SM

Parent Stress Line Counselors respond to calls from parents, childcare providers, grandparents, neighbors, concerned older siblings, foster parents, and babysitters - anybody responsible for taking care of a child.

Over the years, callers want to discuss issues like parental stress, child development, communication, marital issues, runaway children, substance abuse, and depression. In addition to providing empathy and support, the volunteers on the Parent Support Line offer information and referral to relevant parental support services.

All Counselors must pass a CORI check.
