We will be closing our Crisis Helpline effective June 30, 2023.
Closing this critical service was a difficult decision, especially as the ACTS Crisis Hotline has been helping people across the country since 1982.However, with the launch of the National 988 services and the Virginia Regional Crisis Center, the ACTS Crisis Helpline is duplicative of these other services.Although the Crisis Helpline will close, ACTS continues to offer information and referral services, our Sexual Assault Hotline, our Domestic Violence Hotline, the Lethality Assessment Protocol in conjunction with the Prince William County Police Department, and provides Senior Link services to our home-bound older adults within Prince William County.
With this change, ACTS will only be able to provide Senior Link services to residents of Prince William County.For ACTS Senior Link clients who reside outside of PWC, ACTS will work closely with them to help find new resources to meet their needs.
Most important,we want to thank all the ACTS volunteers and staff members who have contributed to the success of ACTS Crisis Helpline over the last 41 years. Your hard work, dedication, and commitment to the ACTS Crisis Helpline saved hundreds of lives and helped build ACTS legacy.
