Family Assistance Crisis Team

F.A.C.T. (Family Assistance Crisis Team) is looking for men and women wanting to be part of the San Antonio Police Department’s multifaceted approach to assist victims of domestic violence. This volunteer program is part of the Victims Advocacy Office.

Volunteers make a six month commitment to work one Friday or Saturday night a month from 6:00PM - 1AM or 7:00 p.m. till 2:00 a.m. at one of the 6 substations throughout the City. Volunteers are at the substation to handle any domestic violence phone calls, people who walk in wanting help, and people officers may bring in for assistance. The volunteer’s role is to talk with people about what’s going on in the relationship, what help do they want, where resources are in the community, effects on children when there is violence in the home, and the need to have a safety plan whether returning home or thinking about leaving.

Interested community members must be at least 21, complete an application form, and have no convictions on their record. References are checked as part of the application process.

Potential volunteers must attend training to acquire the information needed to assist people.

These are a set of training classes, giving you 17 mandatory hours of domestic violence training and you must attend VIP Orientation:
