Volunteers sought to help change people’s lives

The Kelowna Crisis Line offers a valuable service to individuals in our community as they experience life’s disappointments, isolation, loneliness, and for some, destitution and suicide.

The Kelowna Crisis Line offers a valuable service to individuals in our community as they experience life’s disappointments, isolation, loneliness, and for some, destitution and suicide.

The volunteers gain valuable skills, work experience and an enriching way to give back to their community.

Volunteers will answer calls and provide a listening ear, explore options and refer callers to valuable resources for those struggling with various life crises.

The Crisis Line offers a comprehensive training and flexible shifts.

Are you looking for any of these opportunities:

• a powerful way to affect the lives of families in need

• belong to a strong team and use your great interpersonal skills

• a way to enrich your academic experience?

For three to four hours per week, you can drastically alter the life course of individuals in need.

The Crisis Line is taking applications for the next training session, starting May 3. If you want to volunteer your time, call Lynne at 250-763-8058, ext. 233 as soon as possible.

Seating is limited and interviews start April 2. For more information, email Lynne at crisisline@kcr.ca.
