Join us on Thursday, May 11, 2017 from 8am-9am, at the Westin Copley Place for our 2017 Breakfast for Hope. Listening is a powerful tool in suicide prevention, and you can join Samaritans in using listening to impact your community and save a life. At the Breakfast for Hope, you will learn about Samaritans’ three key programs: Community Education & Outreach, 24/7 Call or Text Statewide HelpLine, and Grief Support Services.

We are excited to welcome Featured Speaker: MA Senate President Stan Rosenberg.
