PBSO presently has a large and growing roster of trained and experienced 1 to1 phone support volunteers at-the-ready to offer peer support to other bereaved parents. At present, we have a team of 32 volunteers, with 21 volunteers actively engaged with clients.
Though these numbers are impressive, and our phone support team is very committed and skilled, we are also experiencing an ever-increasing demand for this service. Many bereaved families are unable to attend our support groups for a variety of reasons. We are preparing several new volunteers, but sadly, there are still not enough to meet the demand for phone support. We hope to start this New Year by recruiting new phone support volunteers. Do you have one hour a week to spare? Come aboard!
