Volunteer from Home with New Vista

988 is the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. When you volunteer with New Vista, you'll answer the calls of Central Kentuckians and make a difference in your community.

Suicide is not inevitable for anyone. By starting the conversation, providing support and directing help to those who need it, we can prevent suicide and save lives. As a New Vista 988 Volunteer, you’ll receive extensive training and have access to 24/7 support from experienced professionals. This is a remote, unpaid opportunity.
