24-hour help hotline for youth

Round-the-clock rescue is coming for troubled children, including runaways and those at risk of gang initiations or violence.

Former juvenile magistrate turned children’s champion, Faith Marshall-Harris, has expanded her FMH Family Law to join forces with the Sandy Lane Charitable Trust for a 24-hour hotline that provides immediate help and follow-up support for anyone calling with child-related problems.

The 24-hour FMH/Sandy Lane Charitable Trust Helpline is being launched this month and among its recruits are a slew of social workers, church leaders, well-meaning retirees and young people.
