The Utah Domestic Violence Coalition (UDVC) is nationally recognized as the state domestic violence coalition, and is a private non-profit organization that works with our team of victim service providers to prevent and address domestic violence in Utah for over 30 years.

UDVC operates a 24/7 statewide domestic violence hotline called the LinkLine, which offers confidential trauma-informed support to anyone affected by domestic violence. LinkLine advocates can provide general information about domestic violence, local resources, emotional support, and assistance in creating safety plans.

We are always looking for caring and empathetic Volunteer LinkLine Advocates that are dedicated to helping people affected by domestic violence. This volunteer experiences includes:

  • Taking calls on the LinkLine during your chosen shifts, which are generally about 2-4 hours long. You get to sign up for the shifts that work best for your schedule, and can also use your personal cell phone with our call-forwarding software that allows you to take shifts from the comfort of your home.
  • Approach all calls in a non-judgmental manner and direct callers to safe, appropriate services specific to their needs.
  • Regularly attend quarterly meetings hosted by the LinkLine & Volunteer Coordinator to process calls, debrief, and continue personal and team education.

This opportunity is a way to gain valuable skills such as crisis intervention, safety planning, suicide prevention, trauma-informed care, active listening, an understanding of the dynamics of domestic violence, and much, much more. These skills are invaluable experience for anyone interested in entering the fields of social work, psychology, nursing, social justice, legal, law enforcement, etc.

If you are interested in helping survivors of domestic violence in Utah, please reply to this opportunity for more information and upcoming training dates. You can contact our LinkLine & Volunteer Coordinator, Abi, at adurham@udvc.org or 801-521-5544 ext. 1008.
