This fundraiser will support FirstLink's vital services in our community!
Hope Begins Here! FirstLink is all about connecting people to resources. 2-1-1 is a simple, easy to remember, free number that connects callers to information about health and human services. 2-1-1 callers in North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota will be connected to FirstLink's 2-1-1 Helpline, which provides confidential listening and support in addition to information and referral. Call specialists are also trained in crisis intervention, including suicide intervention. FirstLink also anwers the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline for North Dakota and parts of Minnesota. Both phone lines are answered 24 hours a day! We provide a number of mental health related trainings, as well as volunteer management trainings. FirstLink also helps nonprofits and volunteers connect to help meet their volunteerism needs.
