Ways to help

SafeLink Hotline Volunteer

SafeLink, our statewide domestic violence hotline, receives almost 30,000 calls a year. SafeLink volunteers will work alongside SafeLink Advocates to provide over-the-phone advocacy to hotline callers, including supportive listening, safety planning, and crisis intervention. SafeLink is often the first point of contact for a domestic violence survivor to Casa Myrna. Volunteers play a vital role in responding with care and compassion and providing critical resources.
