Union County, NJ – The Union County Rape Crisis Center (RCC) needs volunteer advocates to assist victims of sexual violence. The Rape Crisis Center will train volunteers during daytime sessions at the Colleen Fraser Building at the Union County complex at 300 North Avenue East in Westfield. Prior to training, each volunteer must come to the Rape Crisis Center for an informal interview.
“These volunteers serve Union County residents during a physical and emotional crisis in their lives,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergens. “Volunteer advocates guide victims through legal and medical systems while providing emotional support, and respecting the strict confidentiality of each case.”
Volunteers must be Union County residents at least 18 years of age. They must hold a valid driver’s license and have their own vehicle.
For further information about volunteering, and to schedule an interview, call the Union County Rape Crisis Center at 908-233-7273. Additional information about volunteering is available at the Rape Crisis Center’s blog, www.unioncountyrapecrisiscenter.blogspot.com.
The Rape Crisis Center is part of the Union County Department of Human Services, Division of Planning, and has been serving Union County residents since 1984.
