How can I become a volunteer?
Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and must be able to observe strict rules of confidentiality. Volunteers must not have been involved in a domestic violence or sexual assault incident or used agency services within the last year. You will receive an application to fill out, and a time will be set up to interview you. Volunteers who provide direct services to victims are required to become certified advocates by completing an initial 30-hour training program that is provided by CSADV. If interested call 712-277-0131 and ask for the volunteer coordinator.
