HPS Resource Care Line

Welcome to our Hazel Park Schools Care Line. Calls are answered seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 844-435-7471 (844-HELP-HP1). Our goal is to provide you, our students, parents, staff and community members, with a welcoming and open line of communication to express concerns and feelings related to our current situation and receive help with finding resources.  

The Care Lines staff members include school social workers, psychologists and teachers. In addition, our Director of Student Services, Director of Communications and Director of Technology are also part of this team. All are trained in mental health and crisis situations.  

Every caller will be given up to 25 minutes to express their feelings surrounding COVID-19 and all that goes with it. Our decision to put a time limit in place is to allow everyone an opportunity to call in, receive the time they need and minimize wait times. All calls will be documented, according to the guidelines of HIPAA and FERPA, to maintain accurate records and connectivity.
