About

The Healing Support Volunteer is responsible for responding to the 24 hour crisis hotline. Volunteers are expected to assess and address the needs of the caller by providing information and referrals, emotional support, and crisis intervention. The Healing Support Volunteer may also be responsible for providing accompaniment to sexual assault patients during medical forensic examinations and law enforcement interviews. This is a 24 hour crisis hotline, so volunteer shifts are very flexible.
