No More Crisis Helpline in Knox County

After 32 years, the telephones at the Knoxville Crisis Helpline will stop ringing.

Contact volunteers say a lack of funding will force them to shut down.

The non-profit helpline is scheduled to close on December 30th.

At one time, the helpline answered more than 15,000 calls a year.
The crisis line is available to children, frustrated parents, people with mental health or social service problems and people in crisis.
Contact volunteers say they applied for grant money, but none of it came through.
