If you knew that you could save a life, just by listening, would you?

If your answer is “yes” then we invite you to join the fight against social isolation, emotional pain, and suicide.  It’s a big commitment; but its also a chance to make a huge difference for someone reaching out for help.  Your empathy, and willingness to be involved, are all you need.  We provide the training and resources.

Our next volunteer training class begins Thursday, January 11, 2018 and meets each Tuesday and Thursday from 7:00pm till 9:00 pm for 8 sessions plus our “graduation” celebration on Thursday February 8, 2018.  Click HERE for more information or register for training below.
