Become a hotline volunteer

10 years ago

    The Hope and Justice Project is inviting people to their spring hotline training. Becoming a volunteer with the Hope and Justice Project is a rewarding experience.

   As a volunteer you might be the first step on someone’s path toward happier, healthier relationships and life choices. You would offer support and important information as people affected by domestic violence and dating abuse talk about their situations. 

    Becoming a volunteer is easy. All it takes is a heart for others, a listening ear and 30 hours of training. That might seem like a lot, but every caller’s situation is different and often quite complicated; there’s a lot to be aware of, learn and understand. The training is free. 

    The training is held at the Presque Isle office at 209 State St. It will be begin the week of April 21 and run for six weeks. Then, you can answer the hotline right from your own home — or you’re welcome to come into any of Hope and Justice’s offices if you’d like. The best part is you can set your own hours. The agency is grateful for whatever you can give. Officials like to be able to count on our volunteers for three shifts a month (overnight from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. or any part of the day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.), and it helps if you can keep your days or nights consistent. 

    Becoming a volunteer will help make a difference in the lives of people affected by abuse and violence: adults, teens and kids. 

     If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer or would like more information, call Jennifer at 764-2977 or email volunteer@hopeandjusticeproject.org.
