Volunteers are the heart of DARCC!! Our programs and services greatly rely on the hours of service our wonderful volunteers dedicate to the community. Without a staff of dedicated volunteers we could not provide 24-hour crisis hotline assistance or hospital accompaniment for Survivors of sexual assault and their loved ones. Maintaining 24/7/365 volunteer coverage is an on-going challenge for any agency that provides crisis services to the community and DARCC is no exception.
Firstly, we’d like to thank the 11 individuals who completed our 40-hour Victim Advocate Training in February. We look forward to welcoming Camille Baker, Christina Tung, Christine Patterson, Danica San Juan, Jazmyn Duckett, Jessica Barner, Karina Luna, Rachel Willoughby, Rob Brown, Sarah Klein and Victoria Li to the DARCC family of Advocates!
We want to also give very special thanks to the following Volunteers for their outstanding service to DARCC in January and February –
- Zainab Abdulqader – 123 hours
- Ginni Beam – 115 hours
- Katie Calavan – 182 hours
- Alexis Gonzales – 136 hours
- Tara Rosenthal – 296 hours
- Mary Waller – 107 hours
That’s a combined 959 hours of on-call and direct service to the community. Way to go above and beyond, ladies! THANK YOU SO MUCH.
