HopeLine regroups

By Todd Cohen

RALEIGH, N.C. — HopeLine, the Triangle’s only 24-hour crisis-intervention and suicide-prevention hotline, is trying to raise $42,000 to offset cuts in support from the Triangle United Way.

The United Way, which provides more than half of the Raleigh nonprofit’s $235,000 annual budget, has reduced support for three HopeLine programs for the fiscal year that started July 1.

To recoup the cuts, HopeLine will launch a direct-mail campaign and begin to approach prospective individual donors, says Gayle Butzgy, former director of communications for the N.C. Association of County Commissioners who in February succeeded Denise Mullen as executive director.
