The Center for Women and Children in Crisis
Dear Prospective Volunteers,
I am always excited to hear from people who are willing to volunteer! Volunteering at the Center for Women and Children in Crisis is a unique experience. As a Shelter Volunteer, you will be working with victims of domestic violence and their families as directed by our shelter staff. You could be answering crisis calls, sorting donations, grocery shopping, errand running, as well as spending time with children to give the mother’s a break. The shelter has a variety of needs and I am excited to be able to work with you and teach you about what we do at the shelter.
Volunteering at the Center for Women and Children in Crisis can be a rewarding experience for you. Not to mention it’s a great place to get internship hours, fulfill school service requirements, build resumes, get experience for graduate school, and most importantly, simply taking the time to help others in crisis. At the shelter, we love our volunteers and appreciate the work they do and the supportive role they play.
By state mandate, all volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. The center requires 24 hours of domestic violence core training to become a Shelter Volunteer with an additional 16 hours annually. We also ask that you attend In-Service meetings twice per year. Not only does our grant funding require this but we want to give you the education and support you need to become an informed and effective volunteer.
We ask for a 6 month commitment from each volunteer. Volunteers donate a 2-4 hour shift any day of the week on a weekly basis.
Background checks are required for all volunteers working with our organization. The fee for the background check the for the State of Utah recently changed to $39.75 for anyone with a driver license from Utah, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming or Nevada. The cost is $52.75 for anyone with a driver license from any other state.
Training will be located at our Outreach Office: 1433 East 840 North, Orem, Utah. Please contact us regarding training dates, as they are subject to change.
Thank you for your consideration and interest in serving at The Center for Women and Children in Crisis. Please contact me, no later than 1 week prior to training, in order to ensure your spot. I hope to hear from you soon!
