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.
HopeLine is a 24-hour crisis and suicide hotline and textline, providing caring, non-judgmental, confidential, and supportive active listening since 1970. HopeLine is always in need of volunteers to staff the Crisis Line and Textline, as well as support our Reassurance Call Program. We provide potential volunteers with 40 hours of training to take calls/texts ranging from suicide, mental health, domestic violence, child abuse, substance abuse, and interpersonal relationships.
You must be 18 years or older to volunteer. We ask for a 12 hour a month / 12 month commitment after training is completed. If you are interested, please download the volunteer application at www.hopeline-nc.org, call the business office at 919-832-3326, or email the volunteer coordinator at email@example.com
