Supporting the Work You Are Doing

The Nebraska Family Helpline routinely receives calls from professionals working with families who need additional supports and/or resources. From school counselors to nurses to police officers, the Helpline is available to support the work you are doing with kids and families.

As a social welfare professional who routinely works with families in crisis, do you ever wish that there were a number that you could give a family to call when things are unraveling at home? Perhaps you are working with a family right now who you know needs support beyond what you are able to provide. Or maybe you know a family who is struggling in silence but could maybe open up if given the opportunity to do so anonymously.

Regardless of the particular situation, if you know of a family in crisis, the Nebraska Family Helpline offers just such a service. Private, anonymous and free of charge, the Helpline employs trained crisis counselors to offer research-backed support and advice 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

So whether you give a family a Helpline card to call, or you join a conference call with us, we are available to help whenever they need us.

For free wallet cards and/or brochures to distribute to families, call the Helpline at (888) 866-8660, or click the button below.

If you have a team or work group who would benefit from hearing about the purpose and scope of the Nebraska Family Helpline, call the same number, and the crisis counselors will put you in touch with someone who can help you schedule a meeting or presentation.
