24-Hour Crisis Hotline
Crisis Call Center’s 24-hour crisis line often serves as the first point of contact for individuals who are seeking help, support, and information. Crisis can affect anyone at any time. The need for emotional support or referral assistance is something most individuals encounter at some point in their lives. Staff and volunteers are available 24/7/365 to help individuals discover the skills and resources that they uniquely possess that allow them to develop solutions to maximize self-sufficiency.
If people have the opportunity to talk while experiencing a crisis, the risk of harm to self or others is greatly diminished. Immediate support during a crisis has also been shown to greatly reduce occurrences of abuse and neglect. One of the biggest reasons why our callers appreciate our crisis lines is the anonymous and confidential nature of the free service available to ANYONE at ANYTIME in need of assistance. During times of crisis, people often feel more comfortable talking to someone they don’t know, enabling them to discuss feelings and concerns in a way that may differ from talking with friends and family members.
Crisis Call Center’s 24-hour crisis line is here to provide a safe, non-judgmental source of support for individuals in any type of crisis. In addition to our 24-hour crisis hotline, we also offer crisis intervention through text messaging.
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a 24-hour, toll-free suicide prevention service available to anyone in suicidal crisis. If you need immediate assistance, please dial: 1-800-273-8255 (TALK)
All calls to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline are answered by local crisis centers belonging to the national network. Crisis Call Center is proud to be a member of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline network.
Individuals throughout Nevada can call Crisis Call Center’s 24-hour crisis line at (775) 784-8090 to report child abuse or neglect, elder abuse and neglect, or disabled adult abuse or neglect. Incoming calls during normal business hours are transferred to the appropriate agency, and after-hours reports are taken by Crisis Call Center staff for all overnight, weekend and holiday hours. All reports are turned over to Division of Child and Family Services, Child Protective Services or law enforcement in the appropriate county depending on the level of urgency involved.

Community And Youth Awareness Services
In addition to direct service support, Crisis Call Center is committed to help raise awareness on a variety of subjects that directly affect our community. Crisis Call Center is currently focusing our awareness activities on interpersonal violence prevention and bystander intervention skills through social media and the “Green Dot” awareness campaign.
Have you had your Green Dot today?
Green Dot is a violence prevention program that focuses on making our community safer by empowering bystanders to become active members in reducing power-based personal violence including sexual assault, partner violence, stalking, bullying, and harassment.
- Green Dot is any behavior or choice that promotes safety for all of us and communicates utter intolerance for any form of violence.
- Green Dot is pulling a friend out of a high risk situation.
- Green Dot is posting a status update on Facebook about bystander intervention.
- Green Dot is donating a few dollars to your local center.
- Green Dot is displaying an awareness poster in your office.
- Green Dot is wearing your green dot gear. A Green Dot is getting someone else to step in even if you can’t.
- Green Dot is striking up a conversation with a friend about how much this issue matters to you.
- Green Dot is simply your individual choice at any given moment to make our community safer.
“No one has to do everything….everyone has to do something”

The Fallon Lions Club is involved in numerous community activities and supports many charitable organizations.
When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple: We serve.
In over 200 countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in schools and eyeglass recycling centers, Lions are doing community volunteer work, helping, leading, planning and supporting. Because we’re local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities we live in. And because we’re global, we can address challenges that go beyond borders.
We want everyone to see a better tomorrow. That’s why we support sight programs and services including vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglass recycling. Provide eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight. And raise donations through campaigns like SightFirst and Campaign SightFirst II.
We believe everyone deserves a healthy life. From providing health programs that focus on hearing loss to supporting efforts to control and prevent diabetes, Lions volunteers are working to improve the health of children and adults around the world.
We empower the next generation. Whether it’s providing youth volunteer opportunities and leadership experiences in a Leo club or sharing a message of peace through our Peace Poster contest, our youth programs invest in the future by reaching out to young people.
We serve local communities – and protect the planet. From performing hands-on community work and service projects to providing emergency assistance, our community and environment programs improve our communities – and protect the environment.
We are among the first to respond when disaster strikes. Our Disaster Preparedness and Relief Programs enable Lions to help local communities – and contribute to Lions relief efforts in other countries – in the event of a natural, man-made or healthcare emergency.
