ROCKLAND, Maine, September 18, 2016—New Hope for Women, offering support to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, will hold a 40-hour training session for individuals interested in volunteering on the agency’s 24-hour crisis hotline.
Last year, volunteers on New Hope for Women’s toll-free hotline provided nearly 2,700 hours of support to residents of Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox, and Waldo Counties. Hotline volunteers receive in-depth training, and take calls right from the comfort of their homes, with staff support always available.
Callers to the hotline appreciate having a compassionate, supportive and informative person to talk to, and those working the hotline view it as a way to donate their time and talents to help members of the community change their life, one call at a time.
Hotline training classes will be starting soon. For more information, please contact Stevie Colburn, Training Coordinator, at email@example.com, 594-2128 or go to www.newhopeforwomen.org and download a volunteer application.
