About Solace House
Located in Long Island City, Queens, and Yonkers, Solace House provides free one-on-one counseling for people who are in suicidal distress, have made a suicide attempt, engage in self-harm, or have been bereaved by suicide. Also offered is family support for clients’ loved ones, as well as group bereavement counseling and community awareness workshops and training. All of Solace House’s services are completely free of charge, confidential, and provided by Licensed Clinical Social Workers who have vast experience in the area of suicide prevention and mental health.
Our vision is a world where suicide, self-harm, and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care, and acceptance. Our mission is to support people, families, and communities in crisis by providing free, easily accessible, mental health services to all. By supporting us and participating in the Solace Sunrise Walk, you are helping us achieve this mission – thank you.
For 2022 the Solace Walks will take place across the country starting on May 14th to June 26th.
2022 Solace Sunrise Walk
We’re gearing up for the 2022 Solace Sunrise Walk, an annual 5K walk/run which raises much-needed funds and awareness for Solace House. The services provided by Solace House are critical now, more than ever. As depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation continue to increase, the demand for our services has risen drastically.
90% of our financial budget is achieved through fundraising, therefore, running successful events, like our Solace Sunrise Walk, is critical for us. We really appreciate the support from our community and are looking forward to a phenomenal Solace Sunrise Walk this summer!
About the Solace Sunrise Walk
Starting in the dark & early hours of the morning, participants will walk together as the dawn breaks and sunlight emerges. Our Solace Sunrise Walk invites people from across the country to embark on a journey symbolic of the path many of our clients experience while attending our counseling services – making one’s way from a place of darkness and loneliness to a place of hope and healing. This extraordinary event continues to bring our community together each year, as we walk in solidarity, fighting the fight against suicide.
Join us this summer, as we continue to break down the stigma and create awareness around suicide and mental health. Together we will work towards a world without suicide.
The funds raised through the Solace Sunrise Walk will help our organization expand our counseling services for those who are in suicidal crisis, as well as broaden our much-needed community awareness workshops and training programs. Most importantly, the funds raised will enable us to continue providing our invaluable services at no cost.
