The Crime Victims Treatment Center is New York State's oldest and most comprehensive hospital-based victim services program. Things started small back in 1977, but this little grassroots organization has since grown into a towering forest, providing a vast range of services, free of charge, to survivors of violent crime.
Sounds great, right? It is. Here's where you can get involved.
Join us by becoming a Volunteer Rape Crisis and Domestic Advocate. Our Advocates work with survivors who come to the Emergency Room for treatment.
Volunteer rape crisis and domestic violence advocates provide crisis counseling, emotional support and advocacy to survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence who seek treatment in the emergency departments of our affiliate hospitals, which include Mount Sinai West, Mount Sinai Morningside, Brookdale Hospital and Lenox Health Greenwich Village. All it takes is a comprehensive 40-hour training (provided by us, online), two 12-hour shifts per month, and a willingness to do a whole lot of good.
Please get in touch if you're interested in taking our next training in October 2021.
To become an advocate, you must be:
over 18 years of age
able to reach Mount Sinai West, Mount Sinai St. Luke's, Lenox Health Greenwich Village and/or Brookdale Hospital within 20 minutes in a cab
- have access to high-speed internet or a mobile device
able to commit to being on-call for two 12-hour shifts per month
able to commit to the program for at least one year if accepted
able to attend all training dates: October 14 (evening), and all day October 16, 17, 23 and 24.
Interested? How wonderful! E-mail our Volunteer Coordinator Aly Tadros or give her a call at 212-523-9040. She can't wait to hear from you!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
