Volunteering at DASACC
“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”
- Elizabeth Andrew
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with DASACC! DASACC works within our local communities to support survivors of interpersonal violence and to lead efforts in creating a Safer Warren County.
Our volunteers help us carry out our mission by providing an array of services including answering our 24/7 hotline, providing legal advocacy, educating our communities on interpersonal violence, and much more. Without the hard work and dedication of our passionate volunteers, DASACC would not be where we are today.
Volunteers are utilized throughout the agency for a variety of projects and services. Opportunities are typically split by direct client and non-direct client services.
Direct client services require attending our 60-hour victim counselor training. Non-direct client services require minimal training.
*All volunteer opportunities and training are currently remote due to COVID-19.*
Direct Client Service offers volunteers the opportunity to work directly with survivors. All these opportunities involve crisis intervention work.
Our direct client volunteer opportunities include:
Shelter helpline volunteers assist in answering the 24-hour helpline. These volunteers are trained to provide crisis intervention, advocacy, education, and practical assistance to survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault over the phone.
