24-hour Crisis Hotline Volunteer

HelpLine has a comprehensive training program that prepares volunteers in the areas of communication, listening skills, problem solving, and resource & referral.
Stewards of Children Program Volunteer
The Stewards of Children program is a revolutionary sexual abuse prevention training program that educates adults to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. The free, 3-hour training program is designed for those who serve and engage with children and youth. The program believes and teaches that child safety is an adult’s job.
SARN (Sexual Assault Response Network) Volunteer
The SARN depends on caring volunteers to be on call and provide emotional support to victims of sexual assault at local hospitals and/or law enforcement offices. Volunteers receive extensive training in the area of sexual assault and help give victims the crucial support they need to get through the initial trauma of being a victim.
