Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS) at Zufall Health - Somerville serves as Somerset County's ONLY sexual violence/rape crisis program. We provide the county's 24-hour confidential hotline, accompaniments with survivors of sexual violence to the hospital and/or prosecutor's office and/or police station, crisis intervention, information, referral, and support. Services are also available for family, significant others, and loved ones of survivors.
All interested individuals, after interviewing and acceptance into the program, will need to complete a 40-hour training over the course of 3 months. THe next training will take place starting in January 2017.
Once training is completed, volunteer advocates are qualified to provide assistance through hotline support and accompaniments when requested. Advocates must make a one year commitment and take at least 1 shift per quarter and a total of at least 10 shifts in one year. For more information, please contact SASS at (908) 526-2335 ext. 132, email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Biligual Spanish/English and Male advocates are especially needed.
