The Center for Abused Persons in Waldorf is seeking individuals willing to donate their time to assist victims of sexual assault and domestic violence.
CAP provides 24-hour crisis intervention in addition to outreach and accompaniment for child and adult victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. Ongoing follow-up counseling and therapy are offered to those who have experienced physical and sexual violence.
CAP also operates a hotline to provide crisis intervention.
Volunteers provide outreach and accompaniment for adults and children who have experienced sexual violence. Volunteers meet victims and their family members at Civista Medical Center to provide crisis intervention and information. Volunteers also may choose to provide accompaniment to court for victims of domestic violence. Volunteers may participate in one or both outreach programs based on their interests and schedule availability.
Flexible scheduling is available 24 hours a day. All training for medical and court accompaniment is provided.
