Volunteer Program

In the midst of trauma and tragedy, many individuals feel overwhelmed, alone and scared. By volunteering with our organization, you will be able to assist individuals through emotional and practical support. Our volunteers provide support depending on their availability and comfort levels. Volunteers never attend calls alone and are provided with ongoing training and support.
