Phone volunteers receive training that includes the practices, philosophy and policies of pregnancy helpline. Included in the training are several examples, strategies and methods for speaking with struggling mothers and families. Preferable skills would ideally include, the ability to actively listen without judgement, compassion and patience. We also prefer to have our phone volunteers in line with our life affirming philosophy. Our mission is to extend our hands in love and service and hope the mothers chooses to accept our help and support.
The topics covered in the training also include information and education on, pregnancy, adoption, abortion, post abortion, domestic abuse and lay counseling. Phone volunteers only begin phone shifts after they've received training and complete an individual follow up meeting following the training.
