Needed Now! Domestic Violence Victim Companion
157 people are interested
The Domestic Violence Healthcare Project (DVHP) is seeking to train and onboard a new, energetic group of passionate advocates. 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 volunteer companions provide services on nights, weekends and holidays during 12-hour on-call shifts, selected by volunteers to fit with their schedules. DVHP is accepting applications for all shifts. DVHP volunteers must commit to one year of service though the monthly time commitment is minimal - just 24 hours of on-call time per month.
