Friday, May 19th – Friday, June 23rd, 2017. Are you interested in helping both your local and wider community? Training covers the core of Family’s phone and texting hotline and walk-in services. Training topics include domestic violence, child abuse, mental health and substance abuse, adolescent issues, suicide, and homelessness. The training is free of charge and oriented towards personal growth. You will learn active, compassionate listening skills and ways to connect with people in need. All trainings are held at Family of Ellenville, 221 Canal St, Ellenville but qualify volunteers to help at any of the three walk-in centers (Ellenville, New Paltz & Woodstock). All trainings are mandatory. They do ask individuals who take the training to commit to volunteering with one of the three hotlines, or another Family program, for a minimum of 6 months.
