Samaritans, Inc. is the premier suicide prevention organization in the communities of Greater Boston and MetroWest, providing lifesaving services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Samaritans' purpose is to alleviate despair, isolation, distress and suicidal feelings among individuals in our community; to educate the public about suicide prevention; and to reduce the stigma associated with suicide. For 40 years, Samaritans volunteers – selected, trained and supported by a dedicated professional staff – have provided compassionate and non-judgmental support free of charge for callers to its helplines. Samaritans' volunteers and staff now provide a full range of suicide prevention, intervention and postvention services through community education and outreach; phone, text and chat-based crisis service helplines for those in distress; and grief support groups and personal visits which assist families impacted by a suicide loss in their grieving and healing process. This growing organization provides services that make our communities healthier and happier and provides a working environment that celebrates the positive and lifesaving work that occurs here each and every day.
We seek to fill our open staff positions with talented and highly motivated individuals who can support the volunteers who deliver our services, work to raise awareness of our agency and its mission, or help fund the delivery of our essential programs. We are always looking for committed and passionate volunteers to assist us in service delivery and in our many events throughout the year.
