About Texas Youth Helpline
“The Texas Youth Helpline provides prevention services to youths, parents, siblings, and other family members who are in need of a caring voice and sympathetic ear. Trained volunteers are on call to provide guidance on youth-related concerns, referral information, or simply listen. The helpline receives thousands of calls each year, and the helpline’s database includes approximately 2,000 listings of state and local resources. To date, staff and volunteers have answered more than one million calls.”https://www.dfps.state.tx.us/Youth_Helpline/Our_Story.asp
