Sullivan County Victim Services
Funding for Sullivan County Victim Services comes from federal, state, and county grants, along with private contributions from generous community members and businesses. However, with budget cuts in recent years, we are always looking for caring community members who are interested in volunteering their time to help our agency serve clients and provide education and outreach to the community.
Sullivan County Victim Services has two types of volunteer opportunities. Individuals can become Community Outreach Volunteers or Direct Services Volunteers. Becoming a volunteer with Sullivan County Victim Services is a great way to be a positive influence in our community. If you would like to help our agency, but are unable to commit time volunteering, monetary donations are always greatly appreciated.
Direct Services Volunteers have the opportunity to work closely with SCVS staff by completing tasks directly related to working with clients. Direct Services Volunteers are required to complete 80-hours of comprehensive training that will enable the volunteer to provide services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and other crimes. For example, a Direct Services Volunteer would be able to cover a shift responding to the agency's emergency hotline. All individuals who volunteer with SCVS who are over the age of 18 must have proper child abuse and criminal record checks completed. If you would like to find out information about becoming a Direct Services Volunteer with SCVS, please contact the main office at 570-946-4063.
Community Outreach Volunteers have the opportunity to work closely with SCVS staff by completing a variety of tasks. Tasks may include the distribution of educational and promotional materials, the creation and development of public displays, and the promotion of the agency by representing SCVS at local events throughout the community.
