Description

Rockford Sexual Assault Counseling, Inc. recruits volunteers to provide advocacy for victims of sexual assault or abuse and their families. Volunteers play an important role in helping victims feel they are not alone and not to blame for the assault or abuse. Our agency provides a 40 hour training session for all volunteers. The topics discussed will include, but are not limited to: basic advocacy techniques, the Illinois Criminal Sexual Assault Law, medical care of the victim, crisis intervention, child sexual abuse, and community resources. Volunteers providing advocacy play a crucial role in providing crisis intervention services to victims of assault or abuse.
