Become A Volunteer Advocate

Victim Advocacy training is offered in the spring and fall. This training is a 30 hour state-mandated course that all Victim Advocates must complete.  Advocates answer our 24 hour hotline (must agree to be on-call for two 6-hour shifts per month), provide hospital accompaniment, follow-up contact, legal advocacy, financial advocacy, and court accompaniment.  Victim Advocates help victims find appropriate resources in the community and ensure that victims know their rights.

What Do Our Volunteers Do?

Advocates answer the 24 hour hotline (must agree to be on-call for two 6-hour, week night shifts per month) and provide hospital and on-site examination accompaniment.  Victim Advocates help victims find appropriate resources in the community and ensure that victims know their rights.

Volunteers can also participate in community events that The Center hosts or takes part in to distribute information and speak with attendees about services.
