Victim Services of S.D.G. & A. is committed to recruiting volunteers who understand the uniqueness of our communities. Our comprehensive screening and training program ensures that the people to whom we provide support are assisted with dignity, respect, compassion and empathy from knowledgeable, trained and caring Volunteer Crisis Responders.
Victim Services Volunteer Crisis Responders work as part of a crisis team. Volunteer Crisis Responders provide immediate and on-site direct service to individuals with the intent to help lessen the impact of victimization. This may include but is not limited to: supportive listening, helping a person to prioritize needs, providing accompaniment to an emergency shelter or hospital, making phone calls or helping to secure premises. Volunteer Crisis Responders also ensure information about longer term services is made available to victims.
