Would you recommend Lines for Life?
This is a great organization to align with. They are extremely supportive of the staff and volunteers. The work I've done as a volunteer has been fulfilling and life altering. The training is comprehensive and supportive and no prior experience with crisis work is required. This was a big plus because all I entered those doors with was a willing heart. The people that call in are in high need and what a wonderful thing it is to know that we are there for them. I could share many experiences in which I know that we saved lives and that is the greatest gift of all. Very Highly recommend!!!
Volunteering at Lines for Life has been a life-altering experience for me. The training was great, and the people you work with and volunteer with are some of the best people I know. The experience has left me a more compassionate and empathic person. It is worth it!
This organization gives you a lot of valuable training before taking calls. The staff and other volunteers create a supportive environment. Answering calls gives me a chance to show empathy and understanding to people facing hard times in their lives. At the end of a call, it's a great feeling knowing how much of an impact you've made on someones life. Talking to people in a suicidal crisis sounds intimidating but it's very rewarding work and you will have plenty of support.
This is a great organization to volunteer for! Every shift I leave with the feeling that I have made a positive difference for someone else. There is a team philosophy, where everyone is an equal member of the team as well as one of the most supportive work environments I have been part of. If you want to make a difference in people's lives, you will get that opportunity here.
The training you will reserve is one of the best! The people are great. And it is just a great place to touch peoples lives whether its callers or the people you will being vounlteering with!
