Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of CARE (Capital Area Response Effort) is to reduce family violence in Ingham County.
Response Team members provide immediate assistance to survivors of domestic violence. Volunteers are trained in crisis intervention and community resources before signing up for shifts with another trained volunteer. Shifts are Thursday or Friday 5:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m., or Sunday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Volunteers respond to the home within 30 minutes of the assailant's arrest (and only when an arrest has occurred). They help survivors assess their risk of further injury or homicide, develop a safety plan, and access available community resources. CARE responds when an arrest has been made in Lansing, Lansing Township, East Lansing, Meridian Township, and on the campus of Michigan State University.
