Volunteer Opportunities

The Compass Center volunteer teams are made up of over 35 volunteers from our community who want to help those affected by sexual and domestic abuse.

Rape Crisis Team

Serves survivors of sexual assault who are in crisis

The Rape Crisis Team trains volunteers to respond to survivors of sexual assault at the emergency room and also on the crisis hotline. Volunteers receive over 10 hours of training and shadow actual calls before going alone on calls.  Shifts run on Mondays – Fridays 5 pm to 8 am; on Saturday and Sunday they are 8 am – 8am. Volunteers are expected to pick up three days per month.

Volunteers provide

  • Immediate crisis response, 24 hours a day.
  • Emotional support, advocacy, information and referrals for survivors of violence and their friends or family.
