Parental Stress Hotline
APA hosts a collaborative multilingual hotline service available in seven different languages and dialects. This API Parental Stress Line is free and geared towards those who have language barriers. The telephone number is (415) 642-6850.
Often monolingual API parents do not know where to turn to for help. Through our hotline, they receive information and referral services as well as a lending ear. Our hotline workers are trained to listen and to offer appropriate emotional support.
The API Parental Stress Line is available in the following languages and hosted by the following organizations that are partners of our Asian Pacific Islander Family Resources Network (APIFRN):
Cantonese/Mandarin - APA Family Support Services
Cambodian - Cambodian Community Development, Inc.
Vietnamese - Vietnamese Family Services
