Victim Services volunteer advocates are citizens who have been trained to provide support to survivors of domestic/family violence, sexual assault, assault, and homicide. Volunteer advocates provide crisis intervention to meet the needs of individuals affected by crime.  Volunteer advocates are required to commit to 24 hours per month of on-call coverage.
