We have some big goals this year. Not only are we aiming to reach more people through our Socks, Students and Stories projects, we've realized a real need that needs to be met in our area. As our projects have spread, we are meeting a lot of people that need encouragement and connections to resources. We want to be able to properly help these people that don't know where to go or how to feel better. Many other states have what are called "warm-lines" to meet this need. A warm-line is a non-crisis line that is run by "peers", generally those who have experienced their own struggles and trauma. Currently, Idaho is one state out of many that does not have a warmline to connect people to resources.
To meet this growing need, we have set a goal to start a warmline so that we can provide information on resources and to offer compassion and an encouraging word. We really believe this is an area where we can make a big difference. This is a huge goal for our small organization.
