Advocate for Domestic Violence Survivors - Orientation Sept 7 or 21

You don't have to be an expert to do something to stop domestic violence. As a part of the Middle Way House Crisis Line or On-Scene Advocates team, which provide 24-hour crisis intervention response to victims of domestic and sexual violence, you will gain advocacy skills and learn about the impact of domestic violence on individuals and society. Crisis Liners offer resources and a supportive ear, help callers create safety plans, and conduct intake interviews with new shelter residents. After volunteering on the crisis line, volunteers can train to be On-Scene Advocates, who offer support, information, and resources to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, at the hospital or on the phone. Interested in taking action? Attend a volunteer training, held from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sept. 7 at the Monroe County Public Library Auditorium or from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sept. 21 in Room 101 of Woodburn Hall on the IU Campus. Preregistration is not required. Minimum age is 18. Please contact Debra Morrow at or (812) 337-4510. (
