Sexual assault advocacy programs are a critical part of any community response. As is the case in responding to victims of domestic violence, it is critical that advocates responding to victims of sexual assault in a non-judgmental and supportive manner, suggesting options but allowing the victim to decide what course of action to take.
Advocates answering the hotline provide information, crisis-intervention, emotional support and referrals to callers when they need it most.
Advocates provide face-to-face support at the hospital, police department, or at court proceedings.
In order to continue providing services, DARCC needs the financial support of the community. Fundraising efforts are ongoing and volunteers are a much needed part of those efforts.
Volunteers may choose to support DARCC by providing general office help. Volunteers can assist with day-to-day duties or use their skills and talents to take on special projects.
These volunteers provide education, risk reduction and prevention programs to organizations, businesses and schools. Specialized training is required and provided by DARCC.
