24-Hour Parent Support Line

Child Abuse Prevention Counselors at the 24-hour Parent Support Line at South Valley Community Health Clinic in Sacramento

Our Parent Support Line, a free service from WellSpace Health, receives calls 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We are committed to families. Our dedicated and extensively trained volunteers are available to parents, grandparents raising grandkids, and other caregivers who may be in crisis, seeking information or resources for their family, or just need someone to listen and provide encouragement when it's most needed.

We talk to parents of all ages about all types of parenting challenges -ages and stages, teen challenges, school problems, newborn struggles, single parenting, co-parenting after divorce, post partum depression, foster parenting, guardians, and more. We talk with parents who just feel like giving up, or a new mother who is considering surrendering her child.

Sometimes we just talk about what a parent needs so that they can be at their best for their children. Kids don't come with owner’s manuals-sometimes you just need to talk. We're here to listen.

The 24hr Parent Support Line is a program of WellSpace Health. The Parent Support Line is a vital component of the Effective Parenting Initiative Family Support Collaborative, and is supported by funding from First 5 Sacramento.

Another element of this collaborative is WellSpace Health's North Highlands Birth & Beyond Family Resource Center, one of eight family resource centers in the collaborative providing a wide range of services and support for families with children of all ages. Please call 1-888-281-3000 if you want to learn more about the Parent Support Line, or call the Business Line at (916) 368-3118 for information about these programs and services.
