Suicide Prevention Services of America thanks the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley for its grant of $5,468.
The money was used to increase lighting on the outside of the building, updating the exterior ADA ramp, to update some electrical work, and to refinish the floor in the hotline room. All of the updates were to increase hotline volunteer safety and comfort. SPS has a hotline and is also part of the National 1-800-273-TALK line.
“The Community Foundation has been a partner with us for close to 20 years“, said SPS Executive Director, Stephanie Weber. The staff, board, and volunteers are grateful for their ongoing support.
