About

STAR is looking for highly motivated and passionate women and men interested in working with sexual trauma survivors in the New Orleans community. As a small non-profit organization, we rely on committed community members to provide support to survivors on our 24/7 hotline and accompany survivors to the hospital during day and night. Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Hotline Advocacy: Our trained hotline advocates provide crisis intervention and support to callers on a 24/7 basis.

  • Hospital Accompaniment: Advocates provide crisis intervention and support to survivors at the hospital during a forensic medical exam.

As a volunteer, STAR will provide you with extensive training and educational opportunities, a supportive network of staff members and fellow volunteers, and an opportunity to help survivors heal and move past their trauma. Volunteering is a great resume-builder and a way to learn new skills!
