Maxine Maxwell-Beaner

The December 2021 Hotline Volunteer of the Month is Maxine Maxwell-Beaner, one of our dedicated volunteers in the Kitty Hawk Hotline Pink thrift store. Maxine was nominated by her manager, Tammie Perry-Inscore.

Tammie Perry-Inscore, manager of the Hotline Pink store, had this to say of Maxine:

“Maxine is from Lancaster County, Pa., where she worked in the medical field. She was a medical assistant as well as a clinical research coordinator. She relocated to the Outer Banks in 2018 with her husband of 29 years, Greg Beaner, and their daughter.

“Maxine learned about Hotline’s mission at Festival of Trees in 2018 and has volunteered since then becoming very passionate about the mission. She volunteers at Pink multiple days a week, always willing to help in any capacity necessary, and is always a phone call away. She also handles the pricing and sorting of jewelry at multiple stores. Hotline is truly lucky to have her on our team.”

Maxine personifies the kindness and generosity of the volunteer spirit!

Outer Banks Hotline‘s mission is to promote a safe and compassionate community. We are a private, non-profit human services organization that provides crisis intervention, safe house, information and referrals, advocacy, and prevention education services to residents of and visitors to the Outer Banks.

Working together, Hotline’s well-trained volunteers and dedicated staff provide the community with years of crisis intervention experience in the areas of domestic violence and sexual assault response, prevention education, support groups, and community outreach. Programs and services are added and refined over time as needs are identified.

  • A variety of support groups to empower and educate survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse, groups to address the issues of men who abuse their partners, and programs for children who are affected by violence and abuse in their families.
  • Training and education for allied professionals, such as law enforcement, social workers, health care workers, childcare providers, teachers, and other interested groups. These trainings raise community awareness of the many aspects of personal and domestic crises.
  • Outreach in the community and the schools through community leadership in providing resources for anti-bullying prevention, parent education, services for at-risk youth, emergency assistance for individuals in crisis, and deliberate participation in community events and task forces addressing issues of compassion and safety.
  • A 24-hour crisis line (252-473-3366) connects a distressed caller to a volunteer trained to listen and make referrals. Topics include suicide, family problems, depression, substance abuse, domestic violence, and sexual assault.
  • A comprehensive domestic violence program that includes a safe house, advocacy, support, and referral for victims and their children.
  • A sexual assault response program that provides the assault victim with a trained advocate at the hospital, during interactions with law enforcement, and in court proceedings. Referrals for counseling options are also offered to the victim and family members.

If you are interested in being a volunteer, please call us or stop by a store.

    Thank you for the nice article . I actually moved here in 2015, not 2018.

    We’ll correct Maxine, but you might want to inform the folks at the Hotline who put the year 2018 in the press release.
