What Our Volunteers Are Saying

One of my most treasured experiences... I volunteered with the Long Island Crisis Center for years and I can say they are doing some of the most challenging and essential work imaginable. HIGHLY recommended.

Former Counselor

The atmosphere is amazing, and the people (paid staff and other volunteers alike) are some of the most lovely people you could ever meet. The paid staff truly care and do what they can for the volunteers and a true sense of friendship and camaraderie can be felt.
