CONTACT Altoona Helpline
A caring voice as close as the telephone! Everyone needs someone to talk with who can lend a caring ear, and help them find their inner resources. CONTACT Altoona’s Helpline is the source community members can turn to when it seems there is nowhere to turn. At some point in our lives we may feel the silence of fear, loneliness, or difficult situations. We may turn to family or close friends and just having someone to talk to makes a difference. If you feel you are all alone, there is a place to call. Someone will be there who will listen. Someone will be there, who will care. Telephones are staffed 7 days a week by volunteers trained to listen carefully and help callers identify problems and make decisions about their lives. Since 1982 CONTACT Altoona has helped people in the greater Blair County area and surrounding communities find solutions to a variety of problems including: Crisis Situations, Drug and Alcohol Problems, Illness or Disability, Grief Stricken, Loneliness, or Depression.
