Crisis Intervention Services welcomes people to volunteer time and skills to help provide client services and community education.


Volunteer Opportunities include:

Some training is required for volunteers working directly with clients. If you have a special skill (e.g., cutting hair, plumbing, caring for children), we will work with you to tailor a volunteer opportunity that matches your talent and the hours you are capable of dedicating.
