Chat for Support 

This feature is designed to give our community members an opportunity to engage with peer support quickly and privately.  Simply click on the floating red icon on the bottom right of our website and you will be connected with an agent who will be happy to answer questions or assist you in finding the resources you need.  This feature was launched right after the COVID 19 crisis began, and has been a great success in reaching folks that don’t have access to a phone or prefer to text.
