Wanted: Crisis hotline volunteers
Laconia Daily Sun December 10, 2021
“Crisis line volunteers are a lifeline throughout New Hampshire," said Lyn Schollett, executive director of NHCADSV. Their value can’t be overstated.
“Everyone usually knows someone who’s gone through domestic abuse,” Foster said. “We’re often the first person that someone talks to about their situation. If they’re getting support, encouragement and resources, their outcome can look very different.”
The statistics on domestic and sexual abuse are sobering. According to data from NHCADSV, one in four men nationally report being assaulted by an intimate partner. In New Hampshire 33.4% of women have experienced violence from an intimate partner. Abuse can take the form of physical or sexual violence, psychological, emotional or verbal abuse, isolation or financial mistreatment or control.
