THE NATIONAL FRIENDSHIP LINE, 1-800-971-0016, is a phone number for seniors (60 years of age and older) who can call once a day, every day, if they would like social interaction or ask health questions. They can even request a volunteer to make an outgoing call directly to a loved one who might be in need but is reluctant to reach out. Trained volunteers are available to take the calls and each year they make and/or receive 100,000 phone calls with seniors. The Friendship Line is sponsored by the Institute of Aging (IOA). This service is free.
THE NATIONAL SUICIDE PREVENTION HOTLINE, 1-800-273-8255, provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals.
VALLEY VIEW FOOD BANK was founded in March 2007 by Jesse Ramirez. Jesse served at the West Side Food Bank in Surprise, Arizona for 21 years before starting Valley View Community Food Bank.

More than a food bank, Valley View Community Food Bank is committed to doing as much as possible to serve the needs of our diverse community. Their mission is to serve those in need with compassion and respect while providing the resources for wholesome nutritious food. Valley View Community offers a safe, positive environment where those seeking help can easily find the resources they need to feed themselves and their families. Valley View Community Food Bank is a 501 (c) 3.
