What Volunteers Say
“I originally came to the Crisis Center to do an internship for school, but I found that I really enjoy the work. I get immense satisfaction out of doing what I consider to be noble work. Helping people on a very basic level of just listening to them is magical. I always walk out with the confidence that I’ve done my part to repair the world."

"Being a Rape Response advocate is a challenging and rewarding opportunity. It is a privilege to provide comfort to survivors during one of the toughest moments of their lives. Not only are the staff and volunteers some of the most compassionate people I’ve ever met, but I get to advocate for some of the strongest individuals out there. It is my immense pleasure to volunteer with the Crisis Center."
Volunteer with Rape Response
"I love the training we get—I feel like our training is thorough and ongoing—and I have been able to use that training to help people who are going through times of crisis. It is such an honor to be with our clients, either over the phone or in person with Rape Response, when they are going through difficult situations. I feel like I make a difference. On a practical level, I love how flexible my volunteer schedule can be. And the people who work at the Crisis Center are warm, funny, caring and dedicated!"
Volunteer with Crisis & Suicide Line & Rape Response
"Everyone wants to feel cared for and needed. Volunteers and clients benefit through regular conversations via the Senior Talk Line. As a volunteer, I get a warm feeling knowing that I have been a light in someone's day. Volunteering keeps me active. Even when the conversation is short, it's good to know someone called. A phone call can make ALL the difference."

“I like volunteering because I enjoy helping others, and I feel like I’m actually making a good difference in the world. I also enjoy being around such wonderful people who remind that although everyone has their struggles, there is still so many kind people in the world who want to make sure those people are not alone in crisis."
