Troubled? Need to talk? Someone cares…
CONTACT Care Line is a free, confidential, nonjudgmental telephone helpline serving Anderson, Blount, Grainger, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Roane, Sevier, and Union counties in East Tennessee. The hours of operation are 8 am to 11 pm, seven days a week.
CONTACT volunteers answer approximately 10,000 calls annually from people needing a listening ear, a referral to community resources, or crisis intervention.
People of all ages call CONTACT about loneliness, depression, loss of a loved one, mental illness, financial need and economic pressures, domestic violence, sexual abuse, homelessness, marriage problems, worries about their children, addiction, school and work related issues, and suicidal feelings.
In addition to our helpline, CONTACT offers a special program, Reassurance CONTACT, for seniors, disabled persons, and other homebound individuals who live alone.
