Nineline Crisis Hotline
Crisis Counseling for Homeless and At-Risk Kids
Since it's founding in 1987, the Covenant House NINELINE helped young people in need gain immediate access to our crisis and counseling services. NINELINE was also a valuable resource for parents seeking guidance about difficult family situations or for those desperately trying to locate a runaway child.
Our crisis counselors utilized a database of more than 30,000 social service and child welfare agencies so callers could be connected with immediate assistance – from whichever state or territory a call originated. We answered thousands of phone calls every year from kids, parents, and caregivers dealing with serious problems such as abuse, running away, and suicide.
Have you been thinking about suicide?
Are you a homeless teen living on the streets who needs immediate help?
Do you live at home and need help with a situation that involves physical, emotional, or sexual abuse?
Are you a parent or loved one who is concerned about the well-being of an at-risk teenager?
