CareRing Phone Counselors To Make Weekly Calls

RSS XML FeedBackground Active Dec 15, 2011 to Jan 1, 2012

CareRing is a free telephone support program offered by CrisisLink. 

CareRing counselors make daily calls to people who live alone, or who are elderly, disabled, or chronically ill. These contacts help people maintain their independence and stay connected to the community by checking in on their well being, reminding them of appointments, medication and other concerns. 

CareRing counselors also provide support to our Hotline Crisis Counselors on shift. 

We are specifically in need of CareRing Counselors on weekday mornings to make calls 7:45 AM-11:15 AM. We require a commitment of 150 hours of shift coverage, which can be filled in approximately 1 year if filling 1 shift per week, or sooner if filling additional shifts. 

Openness to learning, including simple computer tasks. Good interpersonal and communication skills. Ability to speak clearly and be easily understood over the telephone. Must be at least 18 years old. 

CrisisLink volunteers acquire excellent communication skills that are useful in every aspect of life and last a lifetime. Gain the kind of self-respect that can only be earned by giving. Meet new, interesting people who share your sense of purpose. Social events and clubs go year round!
