Chat services after July 1, 2017
Due to massive state budget cuts, IowaARCh will lose all funding at the end of Fiscal Year 2017 (June 30th, 2017). For now, chat services will continue using volunteer advocates, so please continue to chat with us. Note that hours of availability may vary, so if you are not able to get in touch with us, please consider using the following chat & text services (check websites for hours):
- National Domestic Violence Hotline chat
- National Suicide Prevention Lifeline chat
- Trevor Project
- Crisis Text Line: text 741741
It is with great sadness that we chatline staff prepare to leave our roles. To everyone who has reached out to us during your most vulnerable moments, know that we carry your stories in our hearts. We support you, we believe you, we thank you, and no matter where life takes us, we will always be your advocates.
