Support our New York service

We have a fully operational service based in the New York Irish Center building, Long Island City, Queens. We offer free and easily accessible services to people who are in suicidal distress, those who engage in self-harm and for families and loved ones who have been bereaved by suicide. Our services have always and will always remain free. The Solace Sunrise Walk raises crucial funds that contribute to the services provided by Solace House.
