Join us in the fight to end sexual violence! We are seeking enthusiastic Helpline volunteers to support survivors.
What is an advocate?
Advocates provide telephone support, accompaniment for survivors and significant others through medical and forensic examinations, and advocacy with law enforcement personnel.
Do I get paid?
Volunteer Advocates receive a small hourly stipend for being on call and carrying a pager. The hourly stipend amount increases during a support line call, hospital accompaniment call, or police accompaniment call.
How old do I have to be to be a Support Line Advocate?
Volunteer advocates must be 18 years or older.
Do I need experience?
Experience in a social services field is desirable. Reliable transportation and a valid driver’s license are required. Extensive training will be provided. The training is unpaid and the exact schedule is to be determined based on participant availability.
How do I sign up?
