You Can Help by Volunteering

The Rape Crisis Center has great opportunities for community members to get involved. Because of the sensitive nature of our work, most volunteer positions do involve significant training. If you are a caring, committed and professional individual who is interested in giving back to our community in this critical way, we encourage you to think about becoming an advocate with The Rape Crisis Center.

If you are interested in volunteering, please visit our website or call our office at 385-2153. The training is 50 hours, and volunteers must be able to successfully complete a criminal background check, drug test, and have up to date immunizations. We ask that volunteers who complete the training commit to 6 hours weekly of volunteer time for minimum of 6 months.
