The Cumbee Center to Assist Abused Persons provides services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Without our awesome team of volunteers we could not provide the number of services that we do! Every service we offer is free of charge to the victim and their family!
We are in need of Hospital Victim Advocates! Victim advocates volunteer for shifts during the week or weekends to respond to any ER hospital calls for domestic violence or sexual assault. By providing the victim with emotional support during their exam, victim advocates serve a vital role in the recovery process, This initial contact with victims is a very important introduction to the services we offer to help empower them after this tragic event.
