HopeLine is currently not accepting new volunteers for the remainder of 2023. The application will open up again in November 2023 to begin screening potential volunteers for the 2024 year. Please check back and fill out your application!

There are many ways to get involved with our organization to volunteer your time and help us continue our mission to support people and save lives during times of crisis!

All volunteers must be at least 18 years old.

HopeLine is now holding all trainings virtually, through Zoom.

Training classes are typically Tuesday evening, Thursday evening, and all day Saturday. After submitting an application, the Program Coordinator will provide all necessary training information for you to be a successful volunteer!

Crisis Line

Crisis Line volunteers go through 32 hours of training and 4 internships to learn our Active Listening philosophy, HopeLine policies & procedures, lethality assessment protocols, and specific skills for crisis de-escalation. Volunteers are then paired with a mentor to begin answering crisis calls and texts. 

Volunteers on the lines can expect to help people experiencing:

  • mental health emergencies

  • suicide

  • domestic violence

  • loneliness

  • grief

  • child abuse

  • trauma

Reassurance Calls

Reassurance volunteers go through an 8 hour training class to learn our Active Listening philosophy, lethality assessment, and HopeLine policies & procedures. Volunteers then can make outbound calls to our Reassurance program participants.


The program participants are typically elderly or homebound with little to no daily support. These calls are friendly, check-in calls to help reduce loneliness and isolation in our community.
