The center relies on a unique team of dedicated volunteers working daily as rape crisis advocates, counselors and prevention educators. Volunteers are essential to the mission of the center and provide direct services to clients. Last year, volunteers answered about 800 calls to our 24-hour hotline, accompanied 609 adults and children to forensic medical examinations for sexual assault, and conducted individual, group and family therapy with over 1,000 individuals and families. 

Volunteer advocates are required to complete a 60-hour training program to become State Certified Sexual Assault Advocates. The center conducts volunteer training three times per year. For more information, please see our volunteer page.
