The Advocacy and Resource Center is conducting volunteer training Monday for anyone who wants to contribute to helping victims of domestic violence in Sheridan County. Yvonne Swanson, volunteer coordinator, said it's a tough, but necessary, job.
Volunteers with the Advocacy and Resource Center take turns being “on call” to provide confidential support for victims of domestic disputes. Forty hours of training, which is generally conducted in the evening, are required before volunteers sign up to be on call for the center when it compliments their schedules.
This month marks Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the Advocacy and Resource center is also planning a March Against Family Violence next Saturday. Stay tuned to Sheridan Media News to hear more from the center. For more information on the Advocacy and Resource Center, call 672-7471.
