About

Hospital Accompaniment Volunteer Advocates sign-up for shifts to carry the MRCCAC hospital line cellular phone. Volunteers respond to the Midland Memorial Hospital emergency room from 5:00 pm until 8:30 am, Monday thru Thursday and Friday after 5:00 pm until 8:00 am on Monday, when a sexual assault victim presents at the ER for a sexual assault exam. Volunteer Advocates must be able to pass a background check and complete SATP training (provided by MRCCAC).

While this is likely the most difficult of our volunteer tasks, it is essential and can be rewarding. Advocates provide support and resources to victims in a time of crisis. Clients accompanied by an advocate are more likely to seek other services such as advocacy and therapy.
