About

Take advantage of this great volunteer opportunity and make an impact on your community with each phone call. Every time you work the helpline, you make a difference in the life of someone in your community.

Telephone Specialists give their time to help callers with critical problems. Calls range from helping someone to find basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter; to highly emotional problems such as suicide or drug and alcohol concerns.

Many callers you are able to help with a referral to a community agency that will further assist them with their challenge, while other callers are looking for a friendly ear and are happy when you listen without judgement.

Every year over 40,000 people call CONTACT Helpline. You can help someone today improve their life with one phone call.

Join our summer training class and be trained in active listening and information and referral.
