Your Sponsorship Benefits The Helpline Center

Each year over 48,000 people in the United States die by suicide leaving behind thousands of loved ones to endure this life-changing loss. Text4HOPE is a crisis texting program providing critical outreach and resources, which is available 24/7 to all South Dakota high school students. Your donation to The 437 Project provides ongoing support to someone who has lost a family member or friend to suicide, connecting them with resources and support groups to navigate through the grieving process. Your contributions will also allow team members access to adequate training to ensure the skills necessary to identify those at risk of suicide and provide the life-saving means to help.
