About

Do you have a desire to make a difference and empower others?
Here is your opportunity: become an ADVOCATE !

As an Advocate with the Center for Hope & Safety, you will provide direct support to victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking on our crisis hotline and may provide some direct service as well.

Assistance is needed in our office and shelter during business hours, and on our after-hours crisis line (weeknights, weekends, and holidays) which you can do from the comfort of your home.

If you are interested in being a part of this community, and you are at least 18 years old, empathetic, a good listener, supportive, self-motivated, and proactive in self-care, you are exactly who we’re looking for!

Advocate training is required for anyone wanting to provide direct service to victims/survivors with the Center for Hope & Safety. In this 52.5-hour training course, you will learn about domestic and sexual violence and how to provide support/advocacy to victims and survivors.

Classes will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings , 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. for 6 weeks, plus one Saturday day, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Training Dates: Tuesday, April 18th -- Tuesday, May 30th
Saturday Class: May 20th (lunch on your own)

This training is predominately designed for women interested in volunteering on the crisis hotline or in the office, intern/practicum students, and community partners.

If you are interested in more information or wish to submit an application, please email us at volunteer@hopeandsafety.org or call 503-378-1572.
