Distress Centres continues to expand, and our call volume increases each year. As the home to the only 24 Hour Distress Line in Toronto, Distress Centres now receives more than 120,000 calls annually to our 408-HELP line. Our team consists of 600 highly trained volunteers at three locations (Downtown, North York and Scarborough).


For 50 years, Distress Centres has provided 24-hour telephone support, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We are the point of first access for community individuals in crisis requiring emotional first aid.


You can donate directly via our website or you can participate in events advertised here on Toronto Charities.


Events are published both on the Toronto distress centre's website and on Toronto Charities where possible. Please contact us directly for the fundraising ideas or any volunteering opportunities.
