Volunteers are essential to the work of the Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center and fill a number of roles including responding to hospital calls, answering the hotline, providing childcare and doing administrative work. We welcome compassionate, caring men and women who want to make a difference in the struggle against domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. Our volunteers represent HCWC, so we believe it is important to empower each volunteer with a greater understanding of the issues surrounding sexual and domestic violence. Because of our sensitivity to client safety and confidentiality, volunteering at HCWC
begins with an application and interview with the Volunteer Coordinator and a criminal background check. Many volunteer roles require participation in our 40-hour Volunteer Advocate Training, which prepares volunteers to assist clients and their children and to represent HCWC in the community.
