About

AID’s Crisis Line provides assistance to persons with a wide variety of needs and concerns:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Loneliness

  • Substance Abuse

    Callers are linked to appropriate referrals in their community.

  • The Crisis Line accepts volunteer applications year round, but brings on new volunteers twice a year at designated training times. Volunteers must be able to be available for extensive training. Training takes place on Thursdayh evenings beginning in the months of March and September. After training, volunteers are asked to commit to one 4 hour volunteer shift a week. Volunteer shifts are available 7 days a week, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m.

    We also accept applications year round for Sunshine Caller volunteers. These are trained volunteers who offer phone support to people in need. Regular, scheduled phone calls provide people with:

  • Social Interaction

  • Medication Reminders

  • Crisis Counseling

  • Referral to Community Resources

    Sunshine caller applications are accepted all year, and training takes place while on your volunteer shift.
