The Samaritans of the Monadnock Region is seeking volunteers to help staff their 24-hour hotline in both the Keene and Peterborough areas.

The Samaritans offer telephone support to individuals who are in need of someone to talk to about their feeling depressed, lonely, anxious or suicidal.

The next Samaritan training will be held on October 14, 15 and 22.

In 2004, the hotline averaged one call an hour, for every hour of every day of the year. In fact there is a suicide every 17 minutes in the United States. As a hotline volunteer you need only to give your time, listening skills and compassion. The rewards of being a Samaritan hotline volunteer include knowing that you are making a difference in someone’s life, learning about the serious community and worldwide problem of suicide and meeting and working with other volunteers who share your commitment to saving lives.

Please call 603-357-5510 to find out more about how you can save lives by answering the phone.

The Samaritans is a Monadnock United Way Agency.
