Heartly House takes crisis intervention calls 24-hours a day. Clients may request an in-person Crisis Intervention appointment. Our trained crisis workers can usually meet with clients within 24-hours. These are not therapy appointments but allows for clients to be provided more in-depth support and education, further resources and referrals.
Non-crisis requests for services can be made from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., 7 days per week. We have language-line interpreting services for non-English speaking callers.
