Mission Statement

The YWCA is dedicated to ELIMINATING RACISM, EMPOWERING WOMEN and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.


YWCA Greater Los Angeles Sexual Assault Crisis Services provides comprehensive services to survivors of sexual assault 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We need the assistance of volunteers like YOU to continue providing these much-needed services in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Volunteers will assist with the intake of calls from our 24-hour crisis hotline and provide accompaniments as victim advocates to survivors of sexual assault treated at one of our SART (Sexual Assault Response Team) hospitals. Volunteer Advocates also assist in educating the community about the emerging issue of sexual violence and are ambassadors of the YWCA GLA Sexual Assault Crisis Services.

All YWCA Greater Los Angeles Sexual Assault Crisis Services volunteers must attend and complete a 56. 5-hour Sexual Assault Certification training before becoming a Certified Sexual Assault Volunteer Advocate. YWCA GLA, SACS is now recruiting for our first cohort of 2023! Our training will begin on February 28, 2023.

This is your chance to join the movement and become a Certified Sexual Assault Volunteer Advocate to help provide support to sexual assault survivors.
