Due to school closures creating a high need for all students to access learning via the internet, companies are offering free or low-cost options during the COVID-19 crisis.
In order to help slow the spread of COVID-19 while continuing to care for our unsheltered neighbors, we have suspended some services and moved most of the others to the Downtown Care Hub at 319 W Travis St.
COVID-19 has been designated a national disaster, making our resources available to the public. Call 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746 to connect with a trained crisis counselor.
Spanish-speakers can call the hotline and press “2” for 24/7 bilingual support.
Callers can also connect with counselors in over 100 other languages via 3rd-party interpretation services; simply indicate your preferred language to the responding counselor for a live interpreter.
TTY number 1-800-846-8517 is available 24/7 to hearing-impaired individuals, who can also utilize the texting options or their preferred relay service (including 7-1-1) to connect with the main DDH hotline 1-800-985-5990, 24/7.
All mentoring sessions are canceled.
Scholarships are still available and will be awarded. Graduating seniors scholarships deadline has been extended to April 24, 2020. Please upload your transcript and letters of recommendation by that date.
