The Victim Center utilizes a team of volunteer advocates to provide assistance to victims 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. These volunteers will offer emotional support and crisis intervention, accompany victims to the hospital after an assault, assist with Ex Parte Orders of Protection, and offer other advocacy services as-needed. Volunteers must be 21 years or older and must be able to pass a criminal background check. There is no cost to participate, and all volunteers are required to attend one of the agency's advocate trainings.
The Victim Center also needs volunteers to serve in a variety of capacities, from fundraising and event planning, to participating on its Board of Directors.
Please contact the office at (417) 863-7273 for additional information on how you can assist the agency as a volunteer.
