Message regarding COVID-19

As of March 19, 2020
In order to do our part in protecting vulnerable populations and to slow the transmission of COVID-19, many programs of the Alliance will be limiting in-person contact during the crisis. This has not been an easy decision, but we want to ensure everyone that services will still be provided to anyone that needs them.

Mountain Crisis Services will be limiting in person services for survivors at our office. Some in-person appointments will be necessary and will be scheduled by staff. Our hotline will be operational 24/7, our domestic violence shelter is still operating, and all counseling will be done via telephone or through video-based services. Legal Advocacy will still be available and advocates will still accompany survivors to court.

The Alliance provides services to some of the most vulnerable people in our community and we will continue throughout this crisis. We are working diligently to ensure our staff are supported during this time so that we can continue to offer these vital services. We look forward to when our services can resume without restrictions and we will continue to make changes as things evolve. Feel free to reach out to any of our programs to learn how to access services or how you can be a support during this time.

Volunteer

DO YOU WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Concerned about violence in our community?
Interested in supporting others? Want to be a part of the solution?
YOU CAN HELP…BECOME A VOLUNTEER!

Mountain Crisis Services has a long history of encouraging volunteers to contribute to our success.  Volunteers bring needed skills and extra support that isn’t always available due to limited funds and staff availability.

You can help us in two ways, as a direct service volunteer and as a support volunteer.

Direct Service Volunteers provide client-contact services such as:

  • Client Counseling
  • Legal Advocacy
  • Court Accompaniment
  • Medication Accompaniment
  • Social Services Advocacy
  • Client Transportation
  • Crisis Line Coverage
  • Art Group Facilitation
  • Office Administration/Reception
  • Shelter Assistance
In order to volunteer in direct services, you must successfully complete 40 hours of training for a Domestic Violence Certification and 40 hours of training for a Sexual Assault Certification.  These training’s ensure that you have the fundamental skills necessary to be effective, and knowledge of the legal framework underlying our work.
Support Volunteers help us with the vital community outreach, fundraising and facility upkeep needs at our main office, the shelters, and the community at large.  You can contribute in a support role with the following activities:
  • Violence Prevention work with Youth
  • Fundraising
  • Donation screening and organizing
  • Advertising and communications
  • Supply runs
  • Yard work at the shelters
  • Light maintenance/handyman work
