Aurora Healing & Advocacy Services is currently in need of hotline volunteers!

Hotline Volunteers are responsible for responding to our 24-hour confidential hotline at the Aurora Healing Center at Sinai Hospital. Volunteers are expected to assess and address the needs of the caller by providing information and referrals, emotional support, and crisis intervention.

This position requires a minimum of 12 hours of coverage per month and a minimum of a 6-month commitment.

Extensive volunteer training is required for this position, and the next volunteer training is:

  • Wednesday 10/5 5:30pm-8:30pm (SA/DV 101 part 1)
  • Thursday 10/6 5:30pm-8:30pm (SA/DV 101 part 2)
  • Wednesday 10/12 5:30pm-8:30pm (Hotline part 1)
  • Thursday 10/13 5:30pm-8:30pm (Hotline part 2)

On top of these real time trainings (TBD whether they are in person/virtual or combination of both), there are some pre-recorded trainings that volunteers must watch on their own time. Training is about 15 hours total.

Please note all volunteers are required to have received, or be willing to receive their Covid vaccination, per Advocate Aurora policy.

Contact nicole.glaser@aah.org with any questions.
