Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.
Victims of crime or circumstance often suffer trauma and have needs that they cannot always meet on their own. The crime, the involvement with law enforcement and the judicial process can all be very confusing and stressful to victims.
Working with the Victim Assistance Program can be a challenging, demanding yet rewarding experience. An ideal advocate is level headed, nonjudgmental, a good listener, understanding and compassionate to the needs and feelings of the victim.
All successful applicants are required to attend forty hours of classroom and on scene training and all regular meetings/trainings each month. Volunteers sign up each month to serve four 12 hour shifts ( 6 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. or 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.).
