About

Rape Crisis Volunteer Victim Advocates respond to calls on the 24-hour crisis hotline. Taking calls occurs during weelmogjts and on weekends. Volunteers are needed in Cabell, Wayne, Mason, Mingo and Logan Counties in West Virginia.

They also take calls from victims who were assaulted previously, sometimes many years ago. We also welcome calls from friends and/or family of victims. Additionally, they serve as an information and referral resource.

Volunteers also have the opportunity to participate in Contact's extensive sexual assault prevention/education program.
