Thank You to Our Amazing Volunteers!
Voices of Hope could not possible do all of the work we do in this community to help victims of domestic violence and sexual assault without the help of our amazing volunteers. At any one time we have at least 40 volunteers helping us to respond 24-hours a day on our crisis line. In addition, we have volunteers who help with fundraising, who come on weekends to help with lawn work and landscaping, who conduct fundraisers on our behalf, and who speak out in the community about our agency.
We conduct trainings for individuals interested in volunteering on our crisis line at least three times a year. This is a 34-hour training program that prepares volunteers to respond to victims and their families who are reaching out for help through our crisis line as well as to respond to questions about domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, incest and other issues that we deal with on a daily basis. Our next training session is May 16 - 20th from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at Voices of Hope. We still have openings for interested individuals in this training session. To learn more, contact our Volunteer Coordinator Brenda at: email@example.com.
