About

Confidential Volunteer Advocates are needed to accompany domestic violence and sexual violence victims to hospitals, law enforcement agencies, and courts. Volunteers assist with crisis intervention, advocacy, and hotline calls. Volunteers also attend community and health fairs representing CFS and the SERV program.

Volunteers must:

  • be 18 years of age
  • have reliable transportation
  • complete 40 hours of training
  • pass the Domestic Violence Advocate training test or Sexual Violence Advocate training test, depending on which training you attend

Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT) advocates are needed in Gloucester and Cumberland counties and Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) advocates are needed in Camden, Gloucester, and Cumberland Counties. Center For Family Services provides the volunteer advocate training program several times throughout the year. For more information and to register for the next training session, please email serv@centerffs.org or Denise Rosen at drosen@centerffs.org.
