Crisis Line Volunteers

Connect2Help is looking for interested community members to help us with our suicide and crisis calls. Each volunteer will be provided with free training on how to help our callers and direct them to the level of care best suited for their needs. We offer 40-hour volunteer training each month. We will ask our trained volunteers to help us a few times a month, as it is convenient with their schedule.

NO EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED! Our training will give the crisis volunteers all they need to assess their callers, practice active listening, how to reflect empathy and how to provide referrals to meet the caller’s needs. Many of our callers just need someone to listen and to care. Would you like to help us? Download the Volunteer Application and email the completed application to volunteer@connect2help.org.

Resource Database Volunteers

 Are you detail-oriented and curious about resources in our community?

If so, we need your help to update our Connect2Help resource database.  Resource database volunteers will make calls to the non-profits and faith-based organizations that provide help to our neighbors in central Indiana.  The information gathered will then be data-entered into our searchable online database.  Our database helps thousands of neighbors and professionals find the right services to keep the lights on, bellies full, medicines in the cabinet and so much more.

For volunteers interested in making calls and gathering information, we have hours available during typical daytime business hours.  For volunteers that would love to help out with data-entry we could also offer additional times during the evenings and weekends, if that is better suited to your schedule.  We can accommodate nearly anyone’s schedule.  NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!  Training will be provided.  Give a little time or a lot.  It’s all appreciated!

If you are ready to fill out the Volunteer Application you can download it here and email the completed application to volunteer@connect2help.org.

If you have questions, please feel free to call us at 317-735-7585. Someone will get back to you right away!
