The Volunteer Crisis Line is needed now more than ever. Our Crisis Line volunteers so far this year have answered 4,816 calls compared to 3,659 last year at this time; the demand for our service is growing substantially.

Ever wanted to give back to your community in a meaningful and enriching way? Now is your chance. Volunteers are a vital part of The Crisis Line. Every year, our volunteers contribute more than 35,000 hours to our 24-hour crisis line, providing access to help and support.

Our volunteers are carefully screened and fully trained prior to taking calls. Volunteers also receive ongoing professional support. Experienced volunteers learn many life and communication skills which are transferable in other aspects of their lives.
