Our human trafficking hotline operates 24/7 which requires the support of our dedicated volunteers. This is not a public-facing hotline. Volunteers answer this hotline during Signs of HOPE business hours, after hours, on weekends, and on holidays.

RISE hotline duties:

  • Answering hotline calls that come directly from trained service providers.
  • While volunteering, you will gain experience in the field responding alongside law enforcement on scene or to locations where a human trafficking victim has been identified.
  • Helping the client with immediate crisis services as well as safety planning and setting the client up with one of our case managers for long-term support.
  • May also include outreach such as handing out resources in the community with the RISE team.


  • Must be able to volunteer after SOH hours, on weekends, and on holidays.
  • Volunteers need to be able to commit to a minimum of eight (8) hours a month.
  • Must be 21 years or older.

This new volunteer opportunity supports our RISE hotline and outreach efforts. We are looking for volunteers who are bilingual and feel comfortable translating for our RISE team.

RISE Language Specialist duties:

  • Accompany our RISE team when doing in-person responses to provide language interpretation services to clients.


  • Must be bilingual in order to volunteer for this project.
  • The greatest language needs are for languages other than Spanish, especially Tagalog and Mandarin. However, we encourage you to apply if you have any additional language skills.
  • Must be 21 years or older.
