New Text for Teens Hotline - 845-391-1000

Teens can call anonymously with problems they are facing

Teens now have a confidential hotline they can text to if they find themselves in a crisis.  That number is 1-845-391-1000. 

The Orange County Youth Bureau and United Way have sponsored  this "Text 4 Teens," hotline which is available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 5 pm to midnight.  If they call at other times, they will be directed to the 24 hour hotline, 1-800-832-1200.  Kids who are experiencing problems in school, at home, or just need someone to talk to are invited to call if the need arises.

Please let the teens in your life know about this.
