Published 4 months ago

AID’s Crisis Line provides assistance to persons with a wide variety of needs and concerns:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Loneliness
  • Substance Abuse

Callers are linked to appropriate referrals in their community.

Volunteers must be available to attend the 10 week training sessions that run every Thursday night from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at AID's Aurora behavioral health offices. Applications are accepted all year for two training programs, one in March and one in September.

We also accept applications year round for Sunshine Caller volunteers. These are trained volunteers who offer phone support to people in need. Regular, scheduled phone calls provide people with:

  • Social Interaction
  • Medication Reminders
  • Crisis Counseling
  • Referral to Community Resources
  • Sunshine caller applications are accepted all year, and training takes place while on your volunteer shift.

Volunteer shifts for both Crisis Line and Sunshine Volunteers are available 7 days a week between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Volunteers are asked to commit to one, 4 hour volunteer shift a week following the completion of training.

The next crisis line training class is set to begin on September 9th, 2021, and will run for 10 consecutive Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Applications should be submitted by July 9th, 2021. To complete an application, go to AID's website at:
