Family of Woodstock Hotline Training

October 2016
16 Rock City Rd, Woodstock
Open to all 16 and over

Are you interested in helping both your local and wider community? Are you that listening ear that friends and loved ones always seem to turn to? Are you interested in using the skills you have and building on your knowledge of helping? Family’s hotline training is just what you’re looking for!

Training covers the core of Family’s phone and texting hotline and walk-in services. Training topics include domestic violence, child abuse, mental health and substance abuse, adolescent issues, suicide, and homelessness. The training is free of charge and oriented towards personal growth. You will learn active, compassionate listening skills and ways to connect with people in need.

Family offers an opportunity to be part of the change you wish to see in the world. Intervention is as simple as answering a phone call or text message at the moment someone reaches out. It is as direct as offering a cup of coffee and a bag of food to someone who is hungry. It takes your skill and the amazing depth of resources Family has gathered over its 46 year history.

The training will be offered at our Woodstock walk-in center, located at 16 Rock City Rd, but will qualify you to volunteer at any of our three walk-in centers – New Paltz, Ellenville, or Woodstock. Email volunteers@familyofwoodstockinc.org or stop by 16 Rock City Rd to fill out an application or for more information.
