Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Are you the person your friends and family turn to when they need help?

The Crisis Call Center is looking for Crisis Hotline Volunteers! We offer training classes three to four times per year. No experience is needed. All you need to bring is compassion and understanding. All training and ongoing support are provided while you volunteer with us. Crisis Call Center’s extensive training will provide you with the tools you need to help people in crisis, sometimes at the worst moments of their lives.
As a volunteer, you will answer confidential crisis hotlines regarding multiple forms of crisis ranging from suicide to substance abuse to domestic violence. The 24/7 support that Crisis Call Center and its volunteers offers to our community helps over 60,000 individuals every year. Our amazing volunteers are who make that possible. They are truly the "heart" of what we do!
Teens ages 16-17 are also welcome to participate in our training to become Teen Texting Volunteers. Additionally, Crisis Call Center offers internship opportunities for students attending UNR or TMCC, and other institutions, including online educational institutions. The training is life changing, and answering the hotlines is a great experience for people working in or planning to work in any human services field.
