Crisis Center Looks For Volunteers

Posted: Updated:

Domestic violence could be considered a silent crime. Many people going though situations like these don't come forward or look for help because of the personal nature. But, there is a way for anyone and everyone to help with this growing problem.

The Domestic Violence Crisis Center (DVCC) is now looking for volunteers for the upcoming months. It has been offering advice, protection and shelter to people in abusive situations for more than 30 years, and volunteerism is a big part of the services they offer. Volunteer training sessions are held twice per year in March and September. 

All it takes is a few hours spent training, to have a big impact on someone in a negative situation. 

"It's really rewarding to know that you're helping somebody who's in desperate need of assistance, who really need your help. To be able to be a part of that growth and that assistance, it's really rewarding personally. You just know that you're helping lots of different people," says assistant director of the center Tara Bjornson.

If you are interested in volunteering call the crisis center at 701-852-2258.
