Reviews for Kristin Brooks Hope Center
Incredibly supportive staff, that are always encouraging and helping you build your skills and confidence! They are compassionate towards and passionate about the people they offer help to.
IMAlive is a great organization with volunteers who understand. This is a family of empaths who know what it's like to be depressed, suicidal, or live with chronic pain, and they know the struggles are real.
For me IMAlive is that beacon of light at the end of that dark tunnel that many have faced. We are here to let you know that you are not alone and that there is hope.
I first learned about IMAlive through Misha Collins from Supernatural in Feb 2016. I started doing some research and wanted to help. So i registered my interest in becoming a volunteer.
It took a few months but I am now certified. Since starting with IMAlive I've learnt so much and the people that do volunteering really care about those they speak to. People don't choose to give up their free time (free of charge) unless they genuinely care. These people are simply amazing and really enjoy helping others.
IMAlive helps people every single day. IMAlive will continue to do so.
Thankyou IMAlive, I have learnt so much already and can't wait to continue to grow with you all.
IMAlive is a much needed, valuable and an incredible organisation! Volunteering with IMAlive has given me an opportunity to grow and develop new, extremely useful skills. Being apart of IMAlive means that I am constantly surrounded by caring, helpful and supportive people all with the same goal, to help those in crisis.
I am so grateful for the opportunity that IMAlive gives me to help others in need. Together we are able to save lives every single day, what greater purpose could a nonprofit have?
This is a wonderful organization dedicated to helping those in crisis.
I started volunteering here to just take a few calls and try to buy people as much time as I could but thanks to the intensive training and great community support I feel like I'm making a real difference and helping to save real lives.
I love volunteering for I'malive! It's an amazing organization that helps people everyday! It's been a pleasure working with the staff. I will continue to volunteer there as long as I can. Helping people in crisis has been a true blessing in my life!
This organization is unbelievably valuable. Not only is the training thorough, the supervisors are incredibly helpful with any struggles the volunteers might have. The chatline is high quality and the concept is great. I feel like in the digital age, it's important to have a way for people to connect via the internet with help. It's also important for people who maybe can't be overheard on a hotline for safety reasons in their home. The community surrounding this charity is the best I've had the privilege of being a part of and I'm proud every day to be a part of it.
IMAlive helps people everyday to get through their crisis and find ways to help themselves and move towards a better, more positive future. Volunteering for IMAlive has helped me cope with the losses of people that I loved and cared about, and helped to make me feel like I'm making a difference. Many times I will be chatting with someone in crisis and they thank me for just listening to their problems. IMAlive is a place that people can go to be heard.
