Lines for Life is always looking for committed volunteers of all ages. Bring your experience and interests to one of our program areas, and make a positive difference in someone’s life. Here are some of the areas where you can help:
Crisis Lines – Suicide Prevention: Enroll in our Alcohol and DrugHelpline/ Suicide Lifeline training program; learn to answer calls on our 24-hour confidential crisis lines. We hold volunteer orientations the third Tuesday of the month at noon, and the third Wednesday of the month at 6 pm.
If you’re a veteran, consider volunteering on our Military Helpline, helping other veterans and their families overcome struggles with access to healthcare, housing, employment, post traumatic stress and thoughts of suicide.
