Hotline's Good Neighbor Line is designed for individuals who are
unable to leave their homes because of age, physical disability
or ill health. Hotline listeners call these shut-ins on a regular basis
to keep them connected with the outside world.

This is important because isolation can be dangerous both
physically and mentally -- and it often leads to severe depression
or suicide. Regular contact with a Hotline listener enables these
individuals to share their thoughts and feelings, to laugh and cry,
and to talk with a friend.

Hotline provides its free Good Neighbor Line service upon request
by a physician, social worker, clergy member, friend or family
