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.

  • Potential volunteers need to call or email Maureen for an application at 630-966-4020 or mspradlin@the-association.org

    All volunteers will be screened, interviewed, must provide two references, and must complete required criminal background checking before training.

    Training is offered twice a year, in September and in March and volunteers must attend 12 consecutive Thursday evening training sessions in order to volunteer.

    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.

    Contact Maureen at 630-966-4020 for more information and an application or, email mspradlin@the-association.org,
