The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Common Ground Resource and Crisis Helpline will begin offering Crisis chat and Text services 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. We are looking for dedicated, caring individuals to help move people from crisis to Hope. Common Ground offers volunteers crisis intervention training three times a year with the next session starting September 15th. This intensive training will help amazing people to save lives and learn how to help those struggling find the resources and help they deserve. To learn more about all the opportunities Common Ground offers volunteers please attend a volunteer orientation which is held at 6:00 PM the first Wednesday of every month.
