HIC Support Opportunities

Help In Crisis provides 24-hour crisis service for Cherokee, Adair, Sequoyah, and Wagoner counties utilizing trained volunteers.  Crisis line volunteer applicants are carefully screened and trained prior to serving on the line.  Recruiting and training crisis line workers is an ongoing process.
Many volunteers help sort clothing and other donations the agency receives.  The volunteers organize the donations to be given to families that leave clothing requests, help organize the shelter storeroom, and maintain an inventory of clothing at the shelter.
Volunteers are utilized for special events such as fund raisers, Walk A Mile in her Shoes,Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and Child Abuse Prevention Month

Specially trained nurses are reimbursed for their time. Volunteer advocates assist nurses throughout process to collect, preserve, and document evidence for a sexual assault case. In great need of nurses, victims of violent sexual assault sometimes have to wait for hours for a nurse to be available.
Advocate training continues to be available to seasoned volunteers.  Help-In-Crisis now has advocates serving in all four counties.
