Review for All-Options (formerly Backline), Oakland, CA, USA
Volunteering for Backline has been an incredible experience. The training process is thorough, well-organized, and makes space for feedback from volunteers so that the process can be adjusted as necessary. Additionally, Backline provides accurate and up-to-date information for its advocates so that all are well-equipped to take any kind of call surrounding pregnancy, abortion, adoption, and parenting. I am still fairly new to Backline, but the established volunteer group has been warm, welcoming, and very encouraging. The community creates space for self-care and growth, and values each volunteer's individual spirit and skills brought to the line. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with this organization and know that the skills and heart-space I gain through Backline will stay with me in all aspects of life.
