The Women’s Center for Advancement (formerly the YWCA) needs volunteers for our 24-hour Crisis and Resource Hotline. We receive thousands of calls a year from people in crisis or looking for resources due to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence. Volunteers will receive a 40 hour comprehensive training prior to taking calls. Calls are programmed to volunteers’ personal phones through a central call line, so volunteers can be in the comfort of their home or other location of their choice and be able to assist callers. We are also looking for volunteers to help with a variety of programs in the office which include data entry, filing, light reception, and helping with large mailings.
