CONTACT of Ocean & Monmouth Counties, a non-profit, charitable organization, provides trained telephone listeners who respond to human needs 24 hours every day. This volunteer based organization offers free confidential crisis intervention, information on available resources, and referral to community services.
CONTACT opened its office in 1975 and for almost 40 years has been providing crisis intervention services via telephone to Ocean & Monmouth Counties. Open 24/7/365, anyone who is in need of talking to someone can call their helpline and get an empathetic ear who will listen and not judge. Whether it is a suicide crisis or someone who feels lonely, a person will be waiting to listen.
Tirelessly, volunteers work compassionately to improve the mental health and well-being of our neighbors and maybe ourselves. As the season of giving approaches, remember to give back to these organizations that are an integral part of our community. As a non-profit organization, CONTACT relies on fundraising and grants to keep the doors open. Join them on November 15th for their fall fundraiser. Show appreciation for all they do.
