The Domestic Violence Healthcare Project (DVHP) is seeking volunteers to be trained as victim companions. Based at Carolinas Medical Center, DVHP provides 24-hour advocacy services to victims of intimate partner violence, in person at CMC-Main and by phone to all other Carolinas HealthCare System facilities.
Volunteers provide a comprehensive and caring response, which includes providing supportive services and safety planning based on short-term needs and long-term goals. DVHP is in need of a volunteer in our office on Tuesdays from roughly 10a-4p (hours are flexible) to provide services to patients in person and by phone as well as assist with any clerical duties in down time. Volunteer MUST have some experience providing direct advocacy services to victims of domestic violence. This volunteer should be available at least 3 days a month.
If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-446-3999.
