Sexual Assault Advocates

Sexual assault advocates provide medical and criminal advocacy to individuals and families affected by sexual violence at local emergency rooms and police departments. Volunteers must complete a 40-hour training and commit to a certain number of hours or shifts. Trainings happen throughout the year; stay tuned to our calendar for available trainings, or click below to fill out the volunteer form to denote your interest.

Buddy’s Place Volunteers

Help grieving children, teens, and their families through Pillars Community Health’s Buddy’s Place program. You could help as a greeter or group facilitator or with child care. Programs take place on Monday and Tuesday evenings so it is important for volunteers to have availability at those times. Volunteers must also complete training to participate. Trainings happen throughout the year; stay tuned to our calendar for available trainings, or click below to fill out the volunteer form to denote your interest.

Domestic Violence Volunteers

Domestic violence volunteers may assist with our 24-hour hotline, provide crisis intervention, provide presentations to our children’s group, or assist with day-to-day tasks at Constance Morris House, our domestic violence shelter. All domestic violence volunteers must complete a 40-hour training.
