ATFS seeks volunteers who can help us provide emotional support for families in our service area (see county list below). Volunteers are trained in trauma incidence, have a phone script, and learn what to say (and not to say) to local families in need. Empathy and phone skills required.
Volunteers are "on-call" 2-3 days a month, and must call their referral within 24 hours of contact with our volunteer coorindator. Following the call, volunteers complete a short online assessment form of the conversation so it can be forwarded to the appropriate ATFS counselor for follow up. *Volunteers will not call referrals from their county of residence in order to protect the confidentiality of families.*
Please complete our volunteer interest form and ATFS staff will be in contact with you soon.
