Community support is key to achieving our mission in ending sexual violence. Volunteers are typically needed in the following areas: crisis hotline and accompaniment, outreach and fundraising, calls to action during legislative sessions, and events during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
One of our member centers, The Rape Crisis Center of Milford, is currently accepting applications for their upcoming training to become a certified sexual assault crisis counselor. This 40-hour training will provide valuable information, tools for crisis intervention, and certification to work on the hotline. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. This training costs $50. Applications must be submitted by August 17, 2018.Learn More
