LGBT National Help Center (SF, CA Office)
Resource volunteers, are one branch of our team of peer support volunteers, serving a vital role in ensuring that our database is current and up to date.
With the largest LGBTQ resource database in the country with over 17,000 resources for cities and towns across the US and Canada, we need to make sure that they are all as up to date as possible.
Our hotline and online chat peer support volunteers talk with people from all over who often are in need of direct assistance and local support. Additionally our database is available online to the public at www.LGBTNearMe.org and is used by other mental h ealth organizations in their service to the community.
The database is not static, like many others that can be found online, but live and dynamic because of resource volunteers who are constantly updating, removing outdated resources and seeking out new ones as our community grows and change.
As a Resource Volunteer, you will play an incredibly important role in maintaining the integrity of the resources we provide to the LGBTQ community every day. Much of our updating will be online and you’ll need to use your internet "know how" to find a resource’s current contact information. You’ll also be keeping your eyes out for new resources to add to the database.
This is a volunteer position that isn’t for everyone, it requires a lot of detective work, but it can also be very rewarding.
Being a Resource Volunteer you will get to see the hundreds of types of organizations that exist throughout the country. You will have a unique first hand view of the LGBTQ community most people never see, by exploring it though the resource side.
We get hundreds of calls and chats a week, and the work you will be doing will directly help those in need, many who are first time callers and just beginning on their personal journey of discovery.
