Volunteer Victim Advocates are trained to provide crisis intervention, support, information and referrals for follow-up care to survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. They also offer support to the survivors' loved ones. Advocates travel to hospital emergency departments within Butler County to assist survivors through the exam process, in addition to assisting survivors on the telephone. We provide a thorough training program to equip you with the skills and information needed to effectively assist survivors.
We have our volunteer training twice a year in the fall and in the spring. Our current cycle for training starts on September 24, 2018.
We talk to potential volunteers all year long so please contact us whenever it is convenient for you.
