About

Park Nicollet’s 24-hour domestic abuse support program, AdvoCare, is looking for new volunteer advocates to provide crisis counseling and referral services to Park Nicollet patients who are living with domestic abuse. Volunteers must be non-judgmental and able to actively support patients who come from a variety of experiences and backgrounds.

AdvoCare volunteers are trained to listen with compassion and offer emotional support, provide information about safety planning, discuss patients’ legal options, and provide referrals to shelters or support groups.

Volunteers are asked to commit to three on-call shifts per month for a minimum of 6 months. Volunteers must have a reliable vehicle and be able to reach Methodist Hospital within 30 minutes during their shifts.

New volunteer training begins in April! Please contact Amy Kodet with Park Nicollet Volunteer Services ( amy.kodet@parknicollet.com) for more information on the program, training, and how to apply to be a volunteer.
