About

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

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

If you are interested in making a positive impact in our community, you are exactly what we are looking for!

We do ask that you:

  1. Be at least 18 years old
  2. Are empathetic.
  3. Are a good listener.
  4. Are supportive.
  5. Are self-motivated in your self-care.

To take part in this amazing opportunity to serve our community, you must attend our New Advocate training. 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.

Training begins Tuesday, September 12 th. Sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00pm-9:30pm until October 24 th. One Saturday class is required on October 14 th from 9:00am-5:00pm (lunch not provided).

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.
