Volunteer

We could not do what we do without the help of over 300 volunteers who work on the crisis hotline, at our Neat Repeats Resale Shop, on fundraising events and at the Crisis Center.  In their own way, each person tirelessly gives of their time, talent and compassion to see the mission accomplished.

The Crisis Center is a place where we all root for each other; a community where we celebrate the qualities and talents that make each of us unique.  Volunteer with us and know that you’ve impacted a survivor of domestic violence.

Available Opportunities:

* 24-Hour Crisis Hotline
Clerical/Office Volunteer
Neat Repeats Resale Shop (Orland Park & Worth locations)
Special Events

* Due to the nature and the complexity of our services, the Crisis Center prefers a consistent and longer term commitment for volunteers in positions with direct client contact. These positions require completion of 40-Hour Domestic Violence training.

Application and Training Process

To volunteer, download our Volunteer Application. Send your completed application, along with any questions you may have, to volunteer@crisisctr.org.

Some positions require DCFS and IL Criminal Background checks before starting. The Crisis Center also requires domestic violence training appropriate to the position. 40-Hour Domestic Violence Training is required for all volunteers with regular direct client contact.  Hotline volunteers receive additional training specific to their tasks.  DV101 basic training is also required for some volunteer positions.
