Victim Assistance

Volunteer Opportunities

Victims of crime experience a wide range of emotions and are often confused about what to do or how to get help. The Victim Assistance Program provides 24 hour services to victims of crime. These services would not be possible without the help of our volunteers.

24 HOUR HOTLINE
Volunteers on the 24 hour hotline provide crisis intervention, referrals to community resources and emotional support to victims and their families as they try to cope with the aftermath of sexual assault, domestic violence, robbery or other violent crimes.

Volunteers attend a comprehensive training program to learn these skills. Hotline shifts are flexible and designed to meet the needs of a busy schedule. Hotline volunteers have the option of having the hotline call-forwarded to their home or cell phone.

VICTIM ADVOCATE
Volunteer advocates provide personal advocacy to victims of sexual assault, domestic violence and other violent crime. Advocates respond to area emergency rooms, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office and Lake County Police Departments.

Volunteers may choose to take additional training to become a victim advocate. Successful completion of the 24 hour hotline training is required.

BECOME A VOLUNTEER

For more information or to apply, call the volunteer services specialist at: 440–350–2285. An application packet will be mailed to you. Applicants will be scheduled for an interview prior to being placed in a training class.

Upon completion of the training volunteers receive a certificate and are eligible to sign up for hotline shifts.
