The mission of Hunterdon Helpline is to provide a live, First Assist 24-hour initial assistance call center, as well as programs and services, to meet the needs of the communities we serve through information, referrals and linkage, advocacy, education and care management.
The vision of Hunterdon Helpline is to meet the immediate challenges of Hunterdon County residents, and surrounding counties when appropriate, providing resources and sustainable solutions to improve situations adversely affecting their lives.
Hunterdon Helpline will continue to help at-risk residents with programs and services and the empowering tools and skills needed to navigate the social service system successfully and improve their lives.
- Acts as an Hunterdon County’s umbrella organization for intake referral and professional linkage of callers to appropriate organizations offering specific sources for their needs.
- Provides a social service "hub" other county agencies and organizations can refer callers and clients to when their specialized services cannot offer assistance.
- Serves marginalized at-risk communities such as seniors, persons with disabilities, minorities, the under-educated and under employed.
24 hours/Day. 365 days/Year.
