There are tens of thousands of hotlines & helplines in the United States. We hope to host a registry of all of them. 

Our Mission

Step One - Understand the Importance of Our Mission

The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.


It is for this reason that HelpUnited is committed to helping America's hotline and helpline industry to connect with one another. 


Through a collaborative effort, hotlines and helplines can improve our services by providing easier access to the growing number of hotlines and by quantifying, measuring and reporting about the efficacy of individual hotline and helpline services, as well as our industry as a 

Step Two - Our Industry is Not an "Unmovable Object"

Does the sheer volume of existing hotlines and helplines create such a great obstacle that requesting voluntary registration is not worth the time and effort?


Of course not. We have all committed to serving ther greater good by working in an industry that doesn't build widgets. We have chosen to work for people in need. Given that as our starting point, who wouldn't want to take a few minutes to register their service. Especially since we are armed with the knowledge that the people we are paid to serve should/would greatly benefit from easy, open, transparent and readily available information about our services. 

Step Three - Voluntary Registration

There are tens of thousands of governmental and nonprofit local, regional, state, national and international hotlines, helplines, text chat and web chat services in the United States. One might think there would at the very least be a public resource with a listing of all of these services, if for no other reason, than to make ourselves more accessible to our clients. 


Yet, there is not even a voluntary registration process. Why? Perhaps the industry has grown to fast? Or perhaps there is a niche business that contains easily shareable listings that generates income by not making this data open source?






Registering is Fast & Easy

By definition, we are a socially responsible industry, there is not doubt that we have the means and the ability to create this registry. This is the first step needed to build a collaborative group of similar services, working together to improve all aspects of our industry.
