NEED A FRIEND? CALL THE FRIENDSHIP LINE


Friendship Line California is a 24-hour, toll-free “life-line” that is dedicated to serving Californians over 60 who may be feeling anxious, fearful or lonely.

The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warmline for non-emergency emotional support call. The phone line is staffed with specialists who provide emotional support, grief support, active suicide intervention, information and referrals.

It has been over one month since older adults were asked to stay at home. While staying at home will keep us safe, it may also lead to feeling lonely and isolated from others.

If you or someone you know that is need of connection, call Friendship Line California at
(888) 670-1360 to speak with someone who can provide a friendly, listening ear today.
