Dear CONTACT Friend, For nearly 45 years, CONTACT has answered more than 1 million crisis calls, made over 500,000 agency referrals and intervened in over 25,000 suicides. While these achievements are definitely worth celebrating there is still so much work left to be done in our community. During this holiday season, we thank you for your volunteer and financial support over the years. As we approach our 45th anniversary in 2012, I would like to ask you to consider an end of year contribution. In 2012, CONTACT will begin offering the only support group services specifically for teens diagnosed with a mental illness and their families. And, over the next three years we plan to increase call volume from 41,000 to 80,000. Your end of year donation will secure the financial resources necessary to fulfill these community goals. From our family to yours, we thank you for all that you have done over the past 44 years and hope you will celebrate our 45th anniversary with us. Have a safe and happy holiday!
