We're a small charity that works our hearts out to provide emotional support and crisis intervention to our community's at-risk and most vulnerable individuals. Each donation enables our dedicated team and compassionate volunteers to provide life-sustaining support.

We do our best to stretch every dollar as far as possible to deliver our life-sustaining support to those who desperately need us but, we urgently need your help.

Every day Distress Centres receives 400+ calls. In 2017, crisis calls increased over 30%, ONTX (online chat & text) messages increased by almost 60% and our survivor support programs also saw a 38% percent jump in participation. 

Each donation enables Distress Centres to provide life-sustaining support to individuals at risk and their most vulnerable in our community. Your generous contribution will make an incredible impact on not only our callers and program participants but also their friends, families and colleagues. You can save lives.

Fundraising is an exciting way to use your skills, talents, and expertise. It can get you out of your comfort zone and connect you to those around you while raising money for those who are
navigating their most vulnerable moments with Distress Centres. 

We're happy to help you develop your fundraising event or activity by providing a fundraising toolkit and resources. 



Ever wanted to give back to your community in a meaningful and enriching way? Now is your chance! Volunteers are a vital part of Distress Centres.

Every year, volunteers contribute more than 100,000 hours to our 24-hour distress and crisis lines as well as our survivor of loss support programs. Their contributions provide immediate access to help and support. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities available!
