The Memphis Crisis Center is a non-profit organization that provides a volunteer-powered lifeline to hope 24/7. We administer the Call4Kids Hotline, the HIV Care Line, we partner with Crimestoppers on the Elder Lifeline, and we are the local affiliate of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. MCC volunteers aid the community by answering all of these hotlines. Our trained volunteers use a combination of empathetic listening and crisis intervention to help callers with immediate problems and link them to the long-term resources they need to cope and overcome. We train all of our volunteers and are holding an upcoming training session.
