Becoming a CONTACT Care-Line volunteer is easy and rewarding. Volunteers say that helping others in need enhances their lives and gives them insight to life's problems. No advance training is needed, and training is provided by the Marion Area Counseling Center, free of charge.  To learn more about becoming a CONTACT Care-Line volunteer call Linda Harris, 740-387-5210.
