"I do not think there is anything better than helping somebody realize that they are strong enough to make it through the toughest of times, because even though that strength is hard to see at times, it lies in all of us. The Crisis Center has not only made me a better volunteer, but it has also made me a better friend, a better daughter, a better sister, a better student, and overall a better person." - Julie, Crisis Intervention Volunteer
The Crisis Line was started by a group of determined volunteers in 1970 and to this day, volunteers remain at the heart of all Crisis Center programs. More than 325 people are needed to help just 11 staff members deliver services to nearly 1,000 individuals each week.
We can help you find the “just right” volunteer post that utilizes your talents in a way that best fits your schedule. We provide thorough training to ensure you can put your skills to use right away. Warning: Volunteering at The Crisis Center can be addictive, as you experience the satisfaction of helping us help others and become part of The Crisis Center family.
