Sarah's Inn offers a 24-hour crisis line service to victims and families affected by domestic violence. Crisis line volunteer advocates make a difference in victim's lives, offering emotional support, advocacy, crisis intervention, safety planning, information and referrals to callers in a manner consistent with the policies and procedures set forth by Sarah's Inn.

This volunteer position requires a 6-month minimum time commitment, with volunteers taking at least two crisis line shifts each month. Crisis line shifts are completed from your home using a call forwarding procedure. Illinois state law mandates that Crisis Line volunteer advocates MUST first complete a 40-hour Domestic Violence Advocacy Training, which Sarah's Inn offers three times per year. A completed application, and an interview is required before you are accepted as a volunteer.

Next training start date for crisis line volunteers will begin on October 1st. Trainings are Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6-9 pm AND Saturdays from 9 am - 1 pm thru Saturday November 3 in Oak Park. Once 40 hour trained, volunteers can set their schedule and volunteer from anywhere they have phone access and confidentiality.
