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
- Donation screening and organizing
- Advertising and communications
- Supply runs
- Yard work at the shelters
- Light maintenance/handyman work
