Do you have a passion for helping others, helping them succeed, or overcoming their struggles? Volunteering with SARC is a wonderful opportunity to help make a difference in people’s lives. SARC relies on volunteer advocates to help with our 24/7 crisis line and hospital calls. The crisis line is available to answer questions and assist with support. Volunteer advocates can also respond to hospital calls for medical exams, answer questions and assist with support.
The Support, Advocacy Resource Center (SARC) assists adults and children 24 hours a day by providing support and advocacy to them and their non-offending family members, friends, secondary victims and witnesses to crime. SARC services are free and confidential.
To become a SARC volunteer advocate, 32 hours of training is required. The training is designed to give volunteers the tools they need to work with victims and their families. This year, volunteers will complete eight hours of training from the Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs online webinars. Check our Facebook page or website for the dates and times for the in-office training in September.
For more information or if you are interested in attending our volunteer training, please contact SARC at (509) 374-5391.
