Every day approximately 20 Veterans die by suicide in the U.S. As a result, the Center began the “I Challenge You to 22” program with all efforts focused on getting a Challenge Coin in the hands of Veterans and our service men or women. The HOPELINE Challenge Coin, with messages of support and encouragement on both sides of the coin, includes the HOPELINE text support number as a reminder that hope, help and support is just a text away by texting HOPELINE to 741741.
Police Departments, emergency response personnel, and more equip their teams with HOPELINE Challenge Coins to share with any Veteran or service person that is struggling. Please support our Veterans and service men and woman. They have fought for our freedom, now they deserve our support to be there when they need us most.
