Join Our Team as a Per Diem Advocate!
Choose your own schedule and serve as first point of contact for survivors! Per diem advocates answer crisis line calls in their own home, on overnight and/or weekend shifts. Advocates listen, support, provide information and referrals, and discuss options with the caller. Advocates also respond to local hospitals and police stations to support survivors, as well as screen in survivors seeking emergency shelter.
If interested, contact our Direct Services Program Director at: (603)-352-3782 or email@example.com. Training forms and schedules here:

A: Many people fear that doing this type of work will overwhelm them. Most Crisis Intervention Workers find, however, that it is very rewarding to have helped empower a person who is going through a crisis related to sexual assault/abuse. We learn as much about people’s strength as we do about their pain. Volunteers have the satisfaction of knowing that the work they do makes a real difference, both in individual lives and in the struggle to end sexual and domestic violence in our society.
