Our human trafficking hotline operates 24/7 which requires the support of volunteers. Volunteers answer this hotline during Signs of HOPE business hours, after hours, on weekends, and on holidays. Calls to this hotline come directly from law enforcement or other crime service agencies. This is not a public-facing hotline. Volunteers working on this project will also gain experience in the field responding alongside law enforcement to crime scenes or to locations where a human trafficking victim has been identified. Volunteers will help the client with immediate crisis services as well as safety planning and setting the client up with one of our case managers for long-term support. This opportunity may also include outreach opportunities handing out resources in the community with the RISE team. A typical volunteer shift on this hotline is a regular, scheduled 4-hour or 8-hour shift once a week or every other week. Must be 21 years or older.
