See update at Resources>Support Hotline
November 1st Women Against Registry took what was formerly known as the SOSEN Hotline and transitioned it to a ray of hope for registrants and families alike. We have, to date, thirteen folks who have volunteered; eight of those have been officially trained and are responding to calls in real time and emails as received. The new goal in response time is 6 hours. The helpline is sponsored by RSOL, SOSEN and W.A.R., and donations can be made through the Paypal link or P.O. Box on W.A.R.’s website.
In the first 14 days, our volunteers have responded to 24 calls or emails, and where an email is available, links to the support organizations are sent as well as information sought by the initiator of the request.
We do have a Methods and Procedures Guide as well as a Resource Guide to help us to deliver the best possible service and to begin educating these folks in advocacy, not only for this specific situation but also for advocacy for our cause on a broader scale. We are also tracking all calls, requests, and responses.
Additionally, we have a Project Manager whom we have asked to devote 6 months to compiling a useable list of businesses who will hire registrants and possible housing options to be used by our helpline volunteers, as these are the two things most frequently sought.
