Give an Hour is a national non-profit who provides no cost mental health services to at-risk populations in need throughout the United States. Give an Hour began by providing no cost care to our military personnel, veterans, and their loved ones in 2005.

Give an Hour is also offering no cost care to a few other carefully selected populations including victims of natural and man-made disasters, survivors of gun violence and their families, and children and youth. In order to serve those in need, the organization mobilizes a national network of mental health professionals who pledge to “give an hour” of their time each week for a minimum of one year to support these individuals.
