Santa Monica : Hot Line Receives Grants

August 28, 1986

The Santa Monica/Westside Hotline has received $1,000 grants from the city of Santa Monica and Travelers Insurance and $300 from General Telephone Co, according to Director Susan Albrecht.

The 15-year-old hot line, (213) 394-3756, is staffed by volunteers. It takes calls 24 hours a day and handles about 500 to 600 calls a month covering such problems as loneliness and depression, substance abuse and suicide.

Volunteers donate three hours a week after completing eight weekly three-hour training sessions and one daylong seminar. The next class will meet in September.

For information, call (213) 828-3608.
