Community Helpline

The Timebank Community Helpline - Using the power of restorative justice practices to offer open minded listening, practical support and referrals for COVID-19 resources


Monday - Sunday, 4pm-8pm


What does the Helpline do:

  • Continuity for youth currently involved with restorative justice
  • Referrals to much needed COVID-19 resources like rent, mortgage and utilities relief, food, transportation and more
  • One-to-one conversations that allow callers to vent, destress, reconnect.
  • A place to report racist abuses and violence experienced or witnessed in the community, in school or other places.
  • An alternative to calling 911 on Black people when that’s not needed.
