Help Verity Outreach!

Verity staff members, Board members, and volunteers are pretty amazing, but even they can’t be everywhere! That’s why we need your help.

We have created two simple yet eye-catching posters (one in English and another in Spanish) with our crisis line’s number and our logo on them, and we need your help distributing them.

Will you post a handful of these posters in your community?

Next time you’re at your favorite cafe, tack a poster up on the community bulletin board. If your workplace has a break room, hang one up there. If your church, synagogue, mosque, or other place of worship has a space for community fliers, make sure Verity is on display! If you attend or work at a school or college campus, hang up as many as you can wherever you can!

You can download the English poster here and the Spanish poster here. If you want us to print them and mail you a few, please email a mailing address to communications@ourverity.org and we’ll send them out the next business day.

Thank you for helping to spread the word about Verity’s services!
