Details:
Under the supervision of professional staff, all volunteers are carefully screened and fully trained prior to taking calls or working with callers, program participants or survivors of loss. Volunteers also receive ongoing professional support and in-service education sessions. Experienced volunteers learn many life and communication skills which enable them to function more effectively in other aspects of their lives. Our volunteer grief facilitators consist of survivors of loss and non-survivors of loss who receive extensive screening and training. Those with the experience of suicide and/or homicide loss are now at a point where they can give support back to other survivors. Those without the experience of suicide and/or homicide loss bring a rich and diverse background in a variety of social support environments.
