REACH of Haywood, our county's domestic violence/sexual assault/ elder and dating abuse prevention and intervention agency, is seeking volunteers to assist with the REACH Helpline phone services and in other ways through Friends of REACH committees. Training for potential volunteers, open to adults over 18, will take place on Saturday, January 28, from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm at REACH's office location, 627 N. Main Street, Waynesville. Lunch, snacks and training notebooks will be provided to all attendees. Helpline volunteers donate anywhere from one 12-hour shift a month to three or more shifts, as desired. All contact is by phone, your cell or home phone, and no face-to-face contact with callers is required. Each volunteer has a backup staff member in case personal sheltering or emergency service is needed. All calls are referred to the volunteer through REACH's after hours answering service. Call REACH's office at 828.456.7898 for more information and to pre-register and ask to speak with Buffy.
