About

1 in 3 women in Utah will expereince domestic violence in her lifetime! You can help by connecting these women to services in their local area by becoming a Volunteer Crisisline Advocate.

Utah Domestic Violence Coalition is a membership organization bringing together the domestic violence service providers in the state of Utah. We strive, along with our member organizations, to create a state where domestic violence and sexual assault are not acceptable.
Utah Domestic Violence Coalition administers a 24/7 domestic violence crisis hotline called the LINKline. The LINKline has been serving Utahan’s in crisis for over 20 years. We are currently accepting applications for Volunteer Crisis Line Advocates. Volunteers will receive extensive training before they begin taking calls. Once trained, volunteers take calls in their home during their assigned shift. This is a great way for individuals interested in gaining experience in the fields of social work, psychology, social justice, or criminal justice to work one on one assisting individuals who are in crisis or for any person interested in giving back to their community.

We are in need of individuals who can take calls during the day, evening, and overnight. If you are interested in helping keep this vital service available to every person who needs assistant from the LIKNline, please contact Jennifer Czech our Volunteer Coordinator via email jczech@udvc.org or call her at 801-521-5544. You can also learn more about our organization and the work that we do at our website udvc.org.
