Our hotline utilizes highly trained volunteers to maintain a 24-hour presence. They undergo a rigorous training program and background check to ensure that every point of contact with survivors is not only informative but also empathetic and safe.

Our next training in Dubuque and Illinois service area will be June 4-21 from 5:30pm-9pm each day, every Monday-Thursday. After completing the training, we ask volunteers to take 2 on-call shifts per month, which are primarily overnight or on the weekend and commit to volunteering for 1 year.
