Volunteer At HopeNet
In order to help those we serve, HopeNet relies on volunteers who can be the hands and feet of Christ. Several volunteer positions are available.
HopeNet clients are often coming to us from a place of personal crisis. We depend on our Volunteer Advocates to be our front lines of connection with clients, welcoming them and helping them feel safe, emotionally and physically. Advocates have the gift of hospitality and are the first voice people hear when they call in. Those interested must have:
- Compassionate temperament
- Ability to listen and recommend resources
- Computer and phone skills
- Shifts are four hours during normal working hours and can be flexible, based on personal schedules
- Must be 16 or older
Call us at 316-684-4673 to see if this would be a fit for the gifts God has given you. Training will be provided.
