DANBURY, CT - The Women’s Center is now accepting applications for our spring 2019 dual Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Certification program. This 48-hour training class certifies volunteers to perform crisis intervention at the Center during business hours or from home when the Center is closed; it is a prerequisite for court advocate, counselor advocate, group facilitator, and other advanced direct service volunteer positions. Week day training classes begin Tuesday, May 28th, and meet through Thursday, June 6th, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., in the Center’s 2nd floor Training Room at 8 West Street in Danbury.

During the last fiscal year, the Women’s Center responded to over 3,000 sexual assault and domestic violence hotline calls, in addition to providing emergency shelter, counseling services, advocacy services, community education and prevention programs, and information and referral services. More than 33,000 clients in the greater Danbury area were served by the Center’s programs and services.

Whether staffing hotlines, running support groups, providing individual counseling, or working in our shelter, YOU can help to end the violence by visiting the Volunteer page of our website at www.wcogd.org to apply. Please call the Volunteer Coordinator at (203) 731-5200, ext. 202, or email elizabeth.i@wcogd.org, for more information. Space is limited, all sessions are mandatory, and prospective volunteers must apply by Friday, April 19th.

Because abuse does not discriminate, and to insure that our services are responsive to the needs of all individuals, we are actively recruiting volunteers who reflect the diversity of the greater Danbury area and surrounding communities. Candidates must be 18 years of age or older; bilingual volunteers are encouraged to apply. There is a $50 per person materials fee to help defray the cost of the manual (waivers are available for qualified candidates), and a background check will be done.
