About Us 

who we are

Text 2 Stop It! is a free text hotline. Our driving mission is to provide an anonymous reporting tool for kids who experience or witness bullying, drug distribution, weapons in schools, self-harming behavior, or other concerning actions by their peers, as well as an accessible emotional support resource for all children experiencing life stressors including but not limited to bullying, peer pressure, substance use, mental health crisis, and physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. Our 24/7 text platform allows dedicated volunteers to provide confidential support and possibly life-saving information as needed. Our goal is to expand the success of the Text 2 Stop It! to a national level so that we can help more kids. Your support, at any level, would help us achieve this goal and allow us to protect more kids and potentially save even more lives.

our history

Text 2 Stop It! was initially piloted in a Maryland school system as a means for students to report incidents of bullying anonymously and comfortably. Text 2 Stop It! sent the collected information to the school authorities who immediately intervened. Within the first 60 days of implementation, Text 2 Stop It! responded to over 45 tips referencing bullying, planned violence, weapons in schools, drug use, drug distribution, cyberbullying, and planned suicide attempts.

Text 2 Stop It! is expanding its reach outside of the school setting by partnering with other nonprofit organizations that serve youth to increase their exposure and spread awareness of their service. Ultimately, we plan to become recognized as a national resource, while maintaining accessibility and affordability of their service for partner organizations by continuing to offer it free of charge, and fully funding the service costs by contributions received from supportive donors.
