You don’t have to provide your name or any identifying information. All calls made to the Help Center are kept strictly confidential because we are here to provide you with an anonymous ‘listening ear’. No issue is too big or small; our intent is to listen and provide feedback and further resources. We also provide walk-in counseling and free, confidential pregnancy tests without an appointment – just walk in during our hours listed below.”
