Spectra Helpline is a non-profit, multicultural organization providing free, caring and confidential distress lines and support services in several languages for the diverse population of the Region of Peel and surrounding area.

The Project 

  • As a Helpline volunteer, you will support callers on our 24/7 Helpline, crisis/suicide and elder abuse lines.
