The Lifeline was launched on January 1, 2005. Calls come from people in crisis seeking someone to listen, concerned friends and family wondering how to help a loved one, young people, older adults, and returning veterans.
Calls are toll-free and the counseling services are confidential. The Lifeline operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Foundation 2 is pleased to be one of the 133 centers across the Nation who answer calls from the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. We are the only center in Iowa that is a part of this network. Your support of Foundation 2 helps to make this possible.
