Update: Chat ended Oct. 2. A donation of at least $5,000 is needed to resume the service.
2-1-1 Brevard’s pilot program to allow “chat” interaction between helpline specialists and those who are seeking help will end next week (Oct. 2), unless additional funding is received.
“Chat” is available 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays by clicking here.
In addition to information and referral, crisis intervention is offered through online chat during the same hours each week. If chat is not available, dial 2-1-1.
Helpline specialists are available by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The pilot was paid for through a grant from Community Foundation for Brevard. Support to continue or resume offering chat is being solicited. For information, call 631-9290, ext. 224.
