Volunteer with Crisis Services 24 hour hotline! By volunteering with the Crisis Counseling Program (CCP) 24-hour hotline you would be afforded the opportunity to help others in times when they need someone the most - in their time of crisis. The hotline responds to calls 24 hours a day on a wide variety of issues and also acts as the hub of the agency filtering the calls for the other programs.
