Rape crisis training starts in September



United Family Services needs your time. The local group provides service for rape victims and they need volunteers.

Help make a difference in your community by volunteering as a Rape Crisis Companion for United Family Services.

The Volunteers respond to survivors of rape and sexual assault through a 24-hour crisis line and accompaniment at local hospitals to provide emotional support, information, advocacy and education.

The non-profit agency is in need of daytime and night time volunteers.

UFS will hold its next Rape Crisis Companion training in the Mecklenburg County office on September 15, 18, 22, 25, 29, and October 2.  Wednesday night training sessions will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and Saturday sessions will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Training is comprehensive, so trainees must attend all sessions.

The training sessions are open to individuals in Mecklenburg County who are interested in providing support and resources to victims of rape and sexual assault through the agency’s rape crisis hotline and hospital accompaniment.

For more information or to request an application, please contact United Family Services’ Volunteer Coordinator Joey Honeycutt at: 704-367-2734 or [email protected]  The deadline for applications is August 31.

United Family Services provides hope and solutions for people in crisis.
