Volunteers Are Our Greatest Resource!

Our dedicated volunteers offer hope and encouragement to those who are experiencing crisis in their lives. We receive approximately 1,100 contacts per month from people who are overwhelmed with whatever the crisis might be and in need of a warm, caring voice and a listening ear.

You Can Make a Difference!

You can become a part of the vital work of the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline. We provide the training and support for our Crisis Phone Responders. After completion of the training, you begin your volunteer activity in our dedicated phone room located in Boise. Shifts are in 4-hour time slots starting at 8am until 12am seven days a week.
