The Distress Centre together with the GLCSA has secured funding for a new provincial number for support of the GLBTT (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Transsexual) community. The number will be 1-877-OUT-IS-OK and will be Alberta wide. It is our hope that this will help to break some of the isolation that many persons experience especially in the smaller rural communities.

The line is set to begin January 2007. That plan is that it will be run similar to Teen Line. From a set time in the evening, we will be having the calls answered by volunteers who identify as members of the GLBTT community. When the community volunteers are not available, all our volunteers will answer this line. The GLBTT community volunteers will undergo the same training that all our crisis line volunteer undergo and they will also answer the crisis lines.

We are currently recruiting interested volunteers who identify as Gay Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender etc. both internal to the agency and external. If you are interested, or know someone else who would be appropriate, please encourage them to apply to volunteer, (applications are available on our website www.distresscentre.ab.ca).
