The 24 Hour Crisis Line program with New Horizons Crisis Center is possible through the work of our dedicated volunteers. By volunteering a small portion of your time, you can make a difference for someone in need. Our volunteers enjoy helping others and are part of an engaged, diverse, and caring community. Most importantly, volunteers can take pride in providing an essential service to the community and making a difference in other people’s lives.
Crisis Line Volunteers:
Volunteer Trainees who have successfully completed our online training modules, live stream webinars, and a short one-on-one preparation session will become Crisis Line Volunteers. By volunteering with New Horizons Crisis Center, volunteers will provide crucial intervention services for people in crisis at the time of their greatest need. Crisis Line Volunteers also gain unique insight and experience in victim services while working collaboratively with the supportive New Horizons Crisis Center staff. By providing non-judgmental, person-centered services, you will be supporting those in crisis.
What to Expect:
Our on-line volunteer training program is unique and highly regarded. Our volunteers come from all walks of life; such as students, business & medical professionals, and community members. For those pursuing a career in mental health or social services, volunteering with New Horizons Crisis Center is particularly beneficial. You will learn new skills, gain experience in a specialized area, and broaden your depth of knowledge.
Crisis Line Volunteers must successfully complete our training program by finishing the on-line training modules, live stream webinars, and have a short one-on-one in person preparation meeting. Our training program is customized to each volunteer’s schedule and learning styles. We also expect all Crisis Line Volunteers to adhere to New Horizons Crisis Center’s protocols, policies and philosophy. All Volunteers must complete the volunteer application and all corresponding forms, including a criminal background check.
