Volunteer Opportunities

We are a community of hope and we would love for you to join us!

Being invited to be part of another person’s grief journey is a privilege. As such, LOSS has requirements in place such as an application, interview, and a background check. If a prospective volunteer has been impacted by a suicide loss, they should be at least two years out from that loss – although exceptions can be considered.

LOSS has specific training in place based on role. We offer ongoing support for all of our volunteers, and we emphasize the importance of self-compassion and self-care.

The LOSS community of hope provides support in a variety of ways including:

  • First Responding
  • Assembling resource folders
  • Follow up calls
  • Writing cards
  • Visiting local community partners
  • Tracking data
  • Writing articles for newsletters and blogging
  • Support group facilitation
  • And more!

A new volunteer shares: “Your joy gives me hope. I don’t think you know how much you affected my life with your honesty and strength. Since I have met you and the rest of the volunteers, I don’t feel alone in my struggle. I look forward to fostering my friendship with you and LOSS Community Services!“
