Every county should be offering the kind of programs, to teens (11-21) that DIAL/SELF offers: Affordable housing for teens in need and emergency housing for teens in distress - many, many on-going education and mentoring programs that teach teens 'How to live and work on your own' skills - counseling - support - with many individual sites throughout Franklin County, I recently took the DIAL/SELF "virtual tour" with Phil and David and I was amazed to learn that: There is only one DIAL/SELF and that it is unique to Franklin County. We are all so lucky to have DIAL/SELF programs for "teens in need" in Greenfield"
