HelpLine is Jackson County’s only 24-hour crisis hotline, and is almost entirely staffed by trained volunteers. Our trained volunteers and staff listen with empathy, help problem solve, and provide contact information for local area resources to people in crisis. HelpLine answers nearly 9,000 calls annually, and vary from callers asking for a listening ear to desperate pleas for help. HelpLine workers have access to a language line that allows them to speak to callers of many languages other than English.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (541) 779-2393 x 212, or go to our Volunteer page for more information.
