Victim Advocate - SafeShelby Sexual Assault Services

Save to Favorites

SafeHouse of Shelby County

  • 29 people are interested

At SafeShelby, we need volunteers who stand ready to assist sexual assault victims in our clinic in Pelham, AL or at the hospital. Advocates meet clients at the door and go with them through the forensic interview and rape kit exam. They provide emotional support and information regarding additional services.

Don't know what to say or do? No worries. We will equip you with what to say and how to say it! Training classes will help you understand victims' emotions and needs during this time of crisis.

Volunteer advocates are asked to take a minimum of two 12-hour on-call shifts per month. When on call, you don't come in unless you're needed. This means you can go on with your regular activities unless you're called. The response time is 30 minutes. We try to be super flexible. In fact, you pick your own schedule.

Volunteers are asked to commit to at least twelve months of volunteerism.
