Introducing TxtToday

On the blog today we welcome Christopher Kurzum of CONTACT of Mercer County, NJ to give us an update on an exciting project called “TxtToday.” iCarol supports this project through providing the platform and assisting in some coordination in helping centers join this network. We also recently participated in their workshop about TxtToday at the NASCOD/CUSA conference in Nashville. Check out Chris’s update, below:

TxtToday-Logo-CYMK“TxtToday is the new national texting warmline from CONTACT of Mercer County, NJ in partnership with iCarol. We have been working closely with CONTACT The Crisis Line of Jackson, MS on a pilot program to test out the national texting portal. We have had great success in our beta testing and are planning to conduct longer tests utilizing role plays to practice “real life” scenarios.”

“We are also pleased to announce that as a result of our presentation at the NASCOD/CUSA conference, TxtToday now has two additional centers that are going to participate with us in the pilot program, which runs through the end of this year. Both the Idaho Suicide Hotline and the Family Service Association in Pennsylvania will be joining our beta testing. We are very excited to be working with them as well.”

“In the next few weeks, CONTACT of Mercer County, NJ plans on running tests with the three participating centers. We anticipate that these tests will run smoothly and help us identify any areas for improvement. Our next steps are to continue our pilot program and to also apply for grants for TxtToday. We have a number of interested centers that would like to work with us, and when grants are obtained we plan on subsidizing the cost of the network so that we may begin running the program live in early 2015.”

“We would like to thank the centers that are participating in our pilot program with us as well as iCarol for their continued support in this endeavor.”
