Sanctuary In The Streets Hotline: Bi-Lingual Responders Needed!
Sign up to be part of the team that workers and immigrants can call on when they need the community to show up. To become a phone answerer, please sign up for one of our upcoming trainings!
Sunday, December 3, 11:00-3pm at our office (Practice session only 2-3pm)
Saturday, January 13th, 11:00-3pm at our office (Practice session only 2-3pm)
If you'd like to become a phone responder but can't make one of those dates, please email us!
Join us to learn the skills necessary to become a phone responder for the rapid-response hotline and to use your knowledge of multiple languages to help families and individuals in moments of crisis. This initial session is not a commitment to volunteering but rather an introduction to what this position entails and the skills necessary for being an informed crisis phone responder.
In the initial training, we will discuss how to center the caller and respond to their needs in a way that is both supportive and informed. The goal of this training is to familiarize potential hotline phone responders with the hotline, discuss what it means to be a trauma-informed responder, orient phone responders with how the current political climate might be affecting callers, and learn ways to best assist callers in times of crisis. Multilingual hotline phone responders play an integral part of assisting callers and their role goes far beyond solely translating or connecting callers to resources.
Yes, we're a non-profit, and we depend on donations from the community to keep this going! Give here.
