CCSS is the proud recipient of the 2001 President’s Community Service Award and has been nationally recognized by the President of the United States for outstanding volunteer service.
The Crisis Center could not operate as it does today without the dedication of our over 300 volunteers who work on the crisis hotline, at our Neat Repeats Resale Shop, or in one of numerous other volunteer opportunities. Unselfishly, our volunteers give of their time, talent and compassion to help the staff and clients of the Crisis Center.
Help make a difference in someone’s life by being a volunteer for the Crisis Center. You can choose from a variety of fulfilling and flexible programs, in which you can determine your own level of commitment. Join our dedicated team of volunteers in one of the following programs:
