Family Crisis Services Needs Volunteers

Family Crisis Services, a joint domestic violence and sexual assault program of Clinch Valley Community Action, Inc., seeks energetic, dependable and self-motivated individuals to work as Volunteer Advocates.  Volunteers are needed to provide shelter coverage, to answer the hotline, to provide child care and emergency transportation, to provide office support, to assist with public awareness and fundraisers, and to serve as court advocates.

Volunteer Advocates provide companionship, a friendly face, and a listening ear to victims and their families. This job requires a great deal of tact, empathy, understanding and emotional maturity.  Volunteers should also respect confidentiality, display a responsible work ethic and work well with people.
