Upcoming Events

One of the biggest challenges facing Long Island Crisis Center and Response is getting more people to know about their services. “We’re not Nike. We’re not Budweiser. We don’t have the funds to make Long Island Crisis Center’s hotline a household name,” explains Leonard. Participation in events and fundraisers such as those listed below are one way to help—and raise awareness.
