Peer Workforce Support Line Survey
Thank you for your participation!
The Support Line Steering Committee (including Celia Brown and representation from NYC Peer Workforce Coalition) has been working to develop a telephone-based service for NYC Peer Workers to discuss work-related issues. The service will be managed by peer workers LIVE for a few hours a week. It will be confidential and have a secure voicemail message.
The Steering Committee is in the process of developing this project.
Check back for more information!
Results from the survey will be available soon!
