At NeighbourLink Fountain, people’s lives are transformed as they find:
A number of people have come to us saying they are on `suicide watch`; or told us they had taken care of their affairs because they could no longer manage life, at just the right moment they found the Fountain and purpose in life once again . . . someone cared for them.
Because of our advocacy many people have told us they were ‘heard for the first time.’ Also, individuals in agencies or other work places have thanked us for coming alongside individuals.
