Volunteer Position Descriptions

Direct Service Advocate 

– Trained direct service advocates  listen to, validate, educate and support survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking.  Advocates provide information & referrals and options counseling and safety planning. Opportunities are available to staff our 24-hour crisis hotline during nights and weekends or provide in-person advocacy in the MCVP office during regular business hours. (A 40-hour training is required prior to assignment.)

Shelter Opportunities –

Our emergency shelter provides a short-term, safe and confidential living place for survivors and their children who are fleeing an abusive relationship. Volunteer advocates  assist with providing support to survivors seeking safety in the shelter, delivering specialized programs, managing donations, and providing transportation, etc.

Support Group Facilitator

One way to reduce the isolation of domestic and sexual violence is to develop forums for survivors to come together and share their stories with a supportive group of peers. Volunteer advocates facilitate these meetings and can assist staff advocates with the development of innovative groups.
