The Jackson County Child Advocacy Center (JCCAC) is looking for adults to greet and support children and families when they receive services at the JCCAC. Volunteers supervise children while caregivers meet with agency professionals and may assist the caregivers while children are being interviewed or are participating in counseling, as well as light office work like answering phones or helping with paperwork.
Training is provided and background checks will be completed on all potential volunteers.
We typically provide services from 8:00 am until approximately 5:00 pm Monday -Thursday. We are currently looking for volunteers who have availability for at least one 4-hour shift once per week.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Jackson County Child Advocacy Center

The Jackson County CAC strives to meet the needs of children and families in our community by providing a child-focused center that facilitates a compassionate, multidisciplinary approach to the prevention, identification, investigation, and treatment of child abuse and neglect, while minimizing further trauma to the child victim and non-offending family members.
JCCAC is a child advocacy center. We offer a safe place in which children are interviewed by a highly-trained staff person, who conducts neutral, fact-finding, child-oriented interviews. We also offer therapy to clients who have been interviewed at our center at no cost to the family.
