About

Franklin County LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) is seeking volunteers to receive training and join the team.

We are offering an all day training on Saturday, September 9, 2017. Register here:

http://franklincountyloss.org/events/loss-new-volunteer-training-090917/

Through coordination with local authorities, a team of 2 - 3 trained volunteers respond to the scene of a suicide to provide resources, support and hope.

First responders generally consist of a combination of the following volunteers:
Survivor of Suicide (affected by loss of a loved one to suicide)
Mental Health / Social Worker Professional
Clergy / Faith Based Support or other empathetic, concerned community members

As a volunteer, you give support by helping with basic needs and listening.

The team also provides follow up and outreach to survivors, offering hope and guidance through resources in the community.

For every suicide death, there are dozens of survivors left to make sense of it. The Franklin County LOSS Team can help.

*We have a critical need for qualified volunteers to be available on weekdays. Even one weekday a week would be greatly helpful*
