Sep 21, 2018Crisis Line Updates- Lots of Updates

Happy Friday!
First and foremost, thank you so much to the fantastic volunteers (Asha, Ziqi, Julia, and Shelby) who cleaned the crisis line office. You did such an amazing job and your help with that is so appreciated! Everyone was so excited to use the new sparkling clean space!
The intake office is now locked when not in use. The key is on the “Spongebob keychain” in the crisis line office. The master key, in the Resident Advocates office, also works as well.
Notes from our Rape Crisis Center training: A representative from the Indiana Coalition to End Sexual Assault came to Middle Way House last week to talk about Rape Crisis Center development and to share tips for running the crisis line. You can find the notes here.
New Crisis Line and OSA Schedule: After many requests and some confusion, we have created a new Google Doc schedule for Crisis Line and OSA sheets that combines the two schedules into one. Both crisis line volunteers and OSA volunteers will be able to see everyone who has signed up for each shift and what their position is. OSA volunteers will still be able to sign up for weekly shifts while the Crisis Line schedule will still remain consistent for each semester. The current crisis line schedule is in effect through December 16. Please just shoot us an email if you have any questions!
 Please remember: Only two volunteers can sign up for an in office shift at once.
We can always use all the help we can get. We are especially in need of volunteers on Thursdays and Saturdays.

Crisis Line Online Resources!
We now have a working online folder of Crisis Line resources!! For those of you who prefer to pull things up on a computer when your helping a client, or prefer reading reminders online you can use the link below. 🙂 If you prefer hard copies, and using the binders in the office, don’t worry! This online folder is not meant to replace those resources, it’s just in addition! Let a CI staff member know if you have any questions.
