Crisis Hotline Advocates
Our 24-hour Crisis Hotline provides support and information to survivors of sexual assault and their loved ones by patching them through to volunteers trained in crisis management. Because calls are confidentially patched through to any number the advocate likes, working on the hotline is an incredibly flexible way to make a very direct impact. Previous experience with advocacy work is not required, though we require hotline advocates to attend our 40-hour hotline training and commit to picking up 4 shifts (6 hours each) per month for at least a year.
*Please note: our August hotline training is FULL. We are currently interviewing for our October hotline training session.
24-Hour Hospital Advocacy
Hotline Advocates who have worked on the hotline for at least three months are eligible to attend our 8-hour Hospital Advocate Training. Hospital Advocates provide in-person support to recent survivors at local area hospitals. They also help survivors explore their immediate options, advocate for their needs, and connect them to case management.
Help us with a variety of tasks to maintain the smooth functioning of the organization and create a positive space for clients that come to our building. Jobs may include: putting together client packets or hospital folders, sending out letters, data entry, or filing/unfiling. We have occasional need for people looking to do specific tasks, but can always put someone who is open to doing whatever is needed to good use. Our office hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm. Availability during these hours is a must to help out in the office.
