Become a volunteer advocate: Receive free, 40-hour training to become a Certified Advocate in the state of Oregon and volunteer for 3 on-call shifts per month. Volunteers take help line calls from home, on either a cell phone or land line, and provide supportive listening, resource referral and safety planning. Volunteers are also supported 24/7 by experienced staff advocates.

Last year, SAFE’s help line received over 1,000 phone calls and we know that the help line is often a survivor’s first attempt at reaching out for help. That’s why it is so important to have compassionate, committed advocates to answer their call. Please consider donating your time to help SAFE maintain this life-saving service.

Volunteer on our Fundraiser Planning Committee which meets throughout the year and plans SAFE’s annual fundraiser, Roots of Resilience.

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator at sydoneyb@safeofcolumbiacounty.org for more information on volunteering with SAFE and don’t forget to “like” our Facebook page for updates about volunteer trainings and opportunities.
