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.
