The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Family Resource Center, a rape crisis and child advocacy organization needs caring and committed volunteers to assist in victim services. FRC serves abused and neglected children and adult survivors of sexual violence in Kershaw and Lee Counties. We need individuals who are compassionate and want to help provide support for individuals and families during crisis.
This is wonderful volunteer opportunity for anyone looking to gain experience in trauma, child abuse, sexual violence, human services and/or advocacy.
All prospective volunteers are required to be at least 18 years of age, be interviewed by a Center staff person, and pass a criminal background check before completing the training.
