HelpLine is seeking volunteers for their Sexual Assault Services Programs
According to Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network (RAINN), the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, every two minutes someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. 54% of those sexual assault cases go unreported and 97% of rapists will never spend a day in jail. HelpLine of Delaware and Morrow Counties, Inc. believes that while sexual assault can be a devastating, traumatic and life-changing experience, by offering support, we can help improve the lives of those who experience it. Within our community, we can work to remove the stigma associated with it, increase accountability for perpetrators, and prevent future victimization.
HelpLine of Delaware and Morrow Counties, Inc. is now accepting applications for volunteers for their Sexual Assault Services programs. HelpLine is looking for volunteers who believe that when people have been hurt, others should help them out – if they can. Currently, there are three programs accepting applications:
Sexual Assault Response Network (SARN) – The SARN program provides support at emergency and police departments to victims of sexual assault.
Violence Prevention Education – Volunteers for the Violence Prevention Education program help deliver violence prevention programs to local schools and community organizations.
Community Outreach – HelpLine’s Community Outreach program volunteers will assist with administrative tasks and help promote services to the community.
If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the online application or call Shilo Gall, Volunteer Coordinator, at 614-507-5703 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
