NOVA (Network of Victim Assistance)

  • 12 people are interested

Volunteers with NOVA have the special satisfaction of knowing they have contributed to making a victim feel a little less alone, a little stronger. Whether you choose to work directly with victims, or wish to help with other agency activities, your contributions are needed... and priceless. Without the help of our dedicated volunteers and staff we would not be able to assist the nearly 3,500 victims who contact us each year. NOVA's comprehensive 45-hour training course certifies you as a Sexual Assault Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. After completing the training, you can participate in the programs below: CRISIS INTERVENTION COUNSELING: Support victims on our 24-hour hotline. Provide face-to-face support to victims of crime in the emergency room and during police interviews.
