NATIONAL HOTLINE VOLUNTEERS MONTH
National Hotline Volunteer Month was created to honor the inspirational generosity of people who not only give of their valuable time, they also dig down deep into the hearts to give from their souls.
Thousands of volunteers, who cover voice phone calls, text chat and web chat, must prepare themselves everyday to meet whatever challenges lay ahead. Regardless of the challenge, these volunteers provide skilled and kind assistance to individuals, who are usually in the grip of a major crisis.
These volunteers must think on their feet, and rely in great part on their instincts. They will need to instantly assess each new caller and then determine the manner by which they will present themselves, to try to earn the callers' trust.
