Step One: Choose a Way to Help
CRISIS LINE ADVOCATE
Make a direct impact by becoming a volunteer advocate or crisis-line responder. To volunteer in these capacities, you are required to complete a 40-hour crisis intervention training during which you’ll learn proper crisis intervention procedures as well as the effects of sexual violence, about the court process, and how to provide support in an emergency room. Each year, Hearts of Hope sponsors two volunteer training series. Sign up below to start volunteering!
Victims of sexual abuse are subject to severe physical abuse and use hospital emergency rooms to receive medical care. Medical professionals are expected to treat and serve victims with the best care possible for their situation. ER advocates accompany and help victims through this challenging time.
We can always use help during special events and programs. No amount of help is too small, and it is always appreciated.
