Chinese Emotional Support Hotline
If you like to talk to somebody in Chinese, you are more than welcome to call Chinese Emotional Support hotline at 587-997-5977. Our well trained hotline volunteers can provide you with emotional support and connect you to community resources for further help.
Our services are completely free, confidential & non-judgemental.
Our hotline was created after months of efforts by a group of dedicated volunteers, with the goal of improving mental health of Chinese community in Alberta as a whole, especially in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
- If you or someone is in immediate danger – please call 911
- While we will keep all our calls confidential, in cases where there is someone in immediate danger, we may have to reach out to 911 to ensure safety. Additionally, in cases of child abuse, it is required by law for us to contact Children Services. If this may concern you, please reach out to us and our volunteers will help explain this further.

Organizing volunteers to contribute to Canadian society is a worthwhile ongoing program. ECSSEN works closely with local food producers by picking up their donations and then distributing them to families in need and local social service agencies in a timely manner. So far this program has delivered a few million dollars worthy value of rescued food in Calgary, Edmonton, Airdrie, Cochrane and Southern Alberta.
Over 300 volunteers work diligently everyday to carry out this mission. It does not only bring essential food to people, it also create a warmth of support among the recipients. It also generates a joy of helping others and great belongings among our volunteers. Now more than ever, we need volunteers to distribute rescued food during COVID-19 pandemic.
