Volunteer

Because of the sensitive nature of our work, most volunteer positions do involve significant training. We ask that volunteers who complete the training commit to 4-6 hours weekly of volunteer time for a minimum of 6 months. It is our volunteer corps that is responsible for answering our hotline 24/7, as well as responding to victims at the hospital.
