I loved every part of [CELT]. The best part was the people, participants, and facilitators. I never felt more accepted in any other group of people I was part of.

The warm line is a wonderful resource that helps people better navigate the workforce system and mental health system. It is about serving others and meeting their needs, whether they be employment related or informative about issues someone may have. The warm line is helping to close the gap and help callers understand what options they have.
