We need Volunteers to help us man the phones. We are swamped with calls from all over the country and we treat each veteran the way that we would want to be treated.
Volunteers are asked to commit two hours per month of their time and also to commit to two hours of training before manning phones.
Volunteers are the first person that many veterans ever speak to about their PTSD or TBI. We are not professional counselors, we are information delivery volunteers. We inform Veterans what benefits they are entitled to, where to get those benefits and we listen. Mostly, we listen.
Volunteers can call us today and soon can sign up at http://www.nationalptsdhotline.com
Americans all over the nation are calling us at 202.695.8049 and signing up for the next volunteer training class (held once per month). We desperately need your help, said Ken Smith. Please call today and Join us in this battle to help those who have given so much.
