Domestic violence hotline needs volunteers

Aug 31, 2017

Rockland — New Hope for Women is currently seeking to expand its network of hotline volunteers. Extensive training is provided and security is assured.

The volunteer works from the privacy of their home and the client doesn’t know who you are or where you’re located. Support staff is always available.

Last year, New Hope for Women hotline volunteers provided more than 3,200 hours of support to residents of Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox, and Waldo counties. Callers to the hotline appreciate having a compassionate, supportive and informative person to talk to, and those working the hotline view it as a way to help members of the community change their lives, one call at a time.

Hotline training classes will begin in October. For more information about becoming a hotline volunteer, contact Stevie Colburn, training coordinator, at scolburn@newhopeforwomen.org, 594-2128, or go online  to newhopeforwomen.org and download a volunteer application.
