The NewYork Presbyterian Victim Intervention Program is committed to providing free, confidential, compassionate, and comprehensive care to victims of crime for ages 12 and above, including survivors of family and intimate partner violence, physical and sexual assault, and elder abuse, as well as their friends and family, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They also collaborate and coordinate the provision of care with other service providers to develop, expand, and strengthen the array and delivery of comprehensive services to those affected by violent crime.
They are currently seeking volunteers who can be advocates and report to the NYP Emergency Department to support survivors of domestic violence, family violence, and/or sexual assault. These volunteers are the first-responders to survivors when they come to the hospital, and they are crucial to the survivor's experience.
- Advocates must complete the 40-hour training course. Trainings will be offered in the evenings of March 19, 26, 28, and all day on March 23, 24, 30, and 31.
