COVID-19 has impacted Canadians nationwide, not only in their day to day activities, but in their mental health as well.
The Distress Centre of Ottawa & Region is working tirelessly to provide support to thousands in the communities we serve through our 24/7 crisis and support line services. In fact, our call volume increased 30% in relation to COVID-19.
We rely on businesses and individuals to support our 24/7 phone lines, and in this worldwide pandemic, we need your support more than ever.
You donation helps us to answer every single call that comes through our lines. It helps us keep our lights on, volunteers trained and our services in tact.
We have answered over 1.3 million calls to date in our 51 years, and we want to ensure we can continue answering these calls, especially with the world in crisis.
