Crisis Chat Line Volunteers will provide crucial support and immediate response to those in crisis, experiencing trauma, need support or empowerment, or looking for resources and/or contact with Peace at Home staff. Volunteers are expected to work a 2-hour shift regularly, which can be performed at home using their own computer. There is a commitment of 6 months expected. Selected volunteers will be expected to complete mandatory volunteer training and crisis line training and will be provided support and back-up by Peace at Home staff members whenever needed.
Volunteers providing professional services can volunteer on-site supervised by staff members occasionally without having to go through the volunteer training process. If you would like to provide free services to clients off-site, Peace at Home can refer clients, but it will ultimately be up to the clients to reach out for services. The purpose of this policy is to protect the confidentiality of our clients.
