Additional Information:

Volunteer on CAFY's 24-hour helpline and provide emotional support to those who feel depressed, overwhelmed, in crisis, need help identifying services or just someone to talk to. CAFY's helpline responds to people of all ages and all backgrounds, including teenagers and the elderly, people who are victims of violence or sexual abuse, domestic violence, and people just like you and me who suddenly find themselves facing some overwhelming obstacle or personal tragedy and need help and information to get through their situation.

CAFY's Helpline volunteers develop personal and professional skills that have helped them land jobs in the public and private sector (mental health, public health, education, etc.) as well as get into some of the most respected fields such as social work, psychology, counseling and other related graduate programs.

We will be holding a Helpline Volunteer Training Class soon! Send an email to Subject: Helpline Volunteer
