Response Teams Volunteers respond nights and weekends, to provide immediate crisis intervention to survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. Volunteers meet with survivors in the hospital and jail setting to offer support, information and advocacy immediately following incidents of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as respond by phone when necessary. A valid driver’s license and access to a reliable vehicle are required for this program.
Volunteer Time Requirements: On-call shifts run from 5p to 8a on weeknights or 8a-8a weekends. Volunteers are asked to take 3 shifts each month. We also ask that Response Teams volunteers live within 30 minutes of SafeHouse Center, as to ensure prompt responses for survivors. Note: Due to insurance requirements, Response Team Volunteers must be at least 21.
