Volunteer

Your role at RCVCC is essential to our success. Each day people from our community turn to RCVCC at their most desperate times of crisis. Often, they are physically wounded and emotionally drained. They will tell you their stories and desire your support. The responsibility that you have as a volunteer is that each person that reaches out for our services is shown compassion and understanding. When a victim has the courage to ask for help, this agency must be prepared to support and help.  Each victim is deserving of a thoughtful confidant and an advocate who will help them find their own voice.

We rely heavily on volunteers to fill important role at RCVCC which include:

  • Answering the 24-hour Crisis Line after office hours
  • Responding to Emergency Room calls
  • Assisting victims during the Legal Process
  • Participating in Community Awareness
  • Assisting with Support Groups

In order to work with victims, volunteers must complete an application, a state mandated 20-hour training class, and submit a background check. If you are interested in assisted with fundraising or community awareness (and not directly with victims) please complete the applciation, you do not have to attend the 20 hour training.  While these are RCVCC primary volunteer opportunties, there are many other chances to get involved with our agency. Please contact RCVCC for more information about becoming a volunteer.

Next volunteer training will begin on November 7th!
