Administrative Assistant Volunteers

Administrative Assistant Volunteers work with office staff to assist with various administrative duties. Projects available to volunteers include, but are not limited to: 
  • maintainence of client files
  • organization of office materials and curriculum
  • making care packages for clients
  • scanning documents for storage
By performing these functions, Administrative Assistant Volunteers provide vital support services to SARC staff. This is the most flexible way to volunteer at SARC and requires just a few hours a month.

Required Training: Confidentiality training. Option to also become advocate trained if desired which would allow volunteers to further assist by answering the 24/7 hotline and going to help with any daytime medical accompaniments.

Volunteer Advocates

Volunteer Advocates provide direct client services by:
  • answering our 24-hour hotline in the evenings and on weekends
  • providing support and resources to survivors via accompaniments at hospitals, police departments, and court
  • facilitating support groups *extra training required- please inquire*
Advocates are able to answer the phone from their home as all calls are forwarded from the center to a phone number provided. Advocates are requested make at least a 6 month commitment to the center and sign up for 2 shifts per month after training is complete. Volunteer Advocates must be at least 18 years of age. Our Advocates are our lifeline and the voice of support that survivors hear in the middle of the night; without them, the center would cease to function.
