All residents within Ozaukee, Waukesha, Milwaukee, Sheboygan, and Washington counties may call the COPE Line. There is no fee and you can call us any time you are experiencing a crisis or if you just need someone to give resources and support for any struggles you might be facing.
It can be a challenge to find an unbiased ear who is just there to listen. Sometimes, we just need to voice our thoughts and worries and to feel some relief from our problems. Whether you are facing a new stressor or have been dealing with a difficulty long-term, calling the COPE Line can help provide a sense of relief and direction.
The COPE Line was originally founded as the COPE Hotline under COPE Services, Inc, an organization that was committed to serving the local Ozaukee area and surrounding residents for over 40 years.
As a branded organization under The Difference Principle, Inc, Sirona Recovery, Inc. now continues the service of the COPE Line as one of its programs.
If you are someone who enjoys helping others through the processes of listening, communicating, and making a difference in the lives of others, you may be eligible to become a COPE Line volunteer! Interested candidates will find details for applying on our website.
