Become a Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Certified Volunteer Advocate

Counselor-advocates provide counseling, advocacy, education, and referrals to survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, human trafficking and stalking. They answer crisis calls on ELAWC’s 24 hour Rape and Battering Hotline and respond in person to hospitals and police stations to provide one-on-one support to survivors and significant others. After successful completion of the Counselor Advocate Training, volunteer counselor-advocates make a one year commitment to weekly 4-8 hour shifts in the hotline and accompaniment program.
