CONTACT is simply people helping people.  Trained volunteers have responded to the needs of individuals throughout our community since 1975. It is CONTACT's belief that within each of us lies the ability to use our energy to find solutions. Through an extensive training period, volunteers develop empathetic listening skills to help callers determine their feelings, identify their options, and find their strengths to resolve their problems. All calls are fielded in a confidential, caring, nonjudgmental manner. We also refer callers to other available community services when appropriate.
