Crisis and Counselling Services

Eastside Family Centre & Community Resource Team 

When someone calls the Community Resource Team’s (CRT) crisis line, or drops into the Eastside Family Centre (EFC), they are usually at the end of their rope. It might be a parent who needs help with their child’s behaviour, or a teenager with a plan to end her life. It could be a business leader or someone struggling with addiction - and the calls can come at any time of the day or night. Your support makes sure those calls are answered.

More than 15,000 people access our crisis and counselling services every year through our EFC and CRT. Your gifts help provide immediate and long-term help in the moments that children, teens and families need it most.
