Additional Information:

Students/Volunteers for the hotline may answer phone from their homes. The line is transferred to their home or cell line. 

Project Help has other areas in addition to volunteering for our hotline in which we need assistance.  At this time we currently have no funding for marketing or PR for the agency.  Marketing/PR/Communications etc. students can help us to create and design marketing materials and a PR campaign to help raise awareness in the community about the services we provide.  We also have a need for help in fundraising to design, plan and help implement fundraisers to help Project Help raise funds to continue providing our services at no charge to the community.

We would also like to re-design our current website.  Students from the computer/technology departments can aide us in this endeavor
