Volunteers play a key role in the efforts of the C.A.R.E. program to reduce domestic violence. While there are many hardworking and dedicated volunteers already working, more volunteers are needed to expand the program.

Prospective volunteers must go through an application process. They will be expected to:

  • provide two references
  • participate in a short interview
  • agree to a review of criminal history and driving records
  • complete approximately 40 hours of training (held over 2 weekends)
  • attend monthly in-service training meetings

If accepted as a volunteer at the completion of the training, volunteers will then be asked to be on call (via pager) approximately one shift every six weeks. Volunteer shifts consist of being on call Thursday evening and Saturday or Friday evening and Sunday so assistance can be provided to survivors throughout the weekend. C.A.R.E. personnel covers domestic violence calls during the week.

Volunteers are asked to commit for at least six months, although one year is preferred.
