SAFE Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition will offer a special volunteer training program for domestic violence and sexual assault crisis counselors beginning March 14, 2016 – April 5, 2016! Agenda coming soon!!!!
This volunteer job may be perfect for you!
Our agency provides a 24-hour crisis hot line for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. We serve Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union counties.
We need Volunteer Victim Advocates to be on-call after office hours, weekends and holidays during shifts they choose each month. These volunteers may also work in our emergency shelter.
Domestic Violence volunteers respond to telephone calls only. Sexual Assault volunteers respond to telephone calls and hospital referrals. Victims of sexual assault who report to law enforcement go to a local hospital for a forensic rape examination and SAFE Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition provides accompaniment and advocacy during this process.
All prospective volunteers attend an extensive 30-hour training program to prepare them for the demands of this position. Training includes an agency overview, dynamics of domestic and sexual violence, current law, crisis intervention, shelter and hospital procedures, listening skills, and resources and referrals.
You can make a difference in the life of a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault. Come and find out how. Call Jamie Hughes or Karen Martin-Wilkins at 583-9803 for more information or to sign up for the class. We hope you will join us!
This training has applied for VSP certification hours through the Office of the Crime Victims’Ombudsman and the Office of Victim Services Education and Certification (OVSEC).

Whenever there’s an allegation of domestic abuse, defenders of the accused bring up due process. In light of Ray Rice being cut by the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, hours after TMZ published a video of the running back assaulting his wife in an elevator, consider the completely undue process Janay Palmer has endured over the past several months. Consider how much hurt and humiliation it took for this sorry semblance of a resolution to be reached:
After years of budget cuts, domestic and sexual violence programs have been forced to reduce services and victims are feeling the impact. The Congressionally-mandated sequester cuts are now taking effect, further decimating the resources that victims need to escape and heal from violence and abuse. Please join us in calling on Congress to end the sequester and ensure that lifesaving services will continue to be available to victims of domestic and sexual violence!
Take action via the link below and share this infographic that explains the devastating impact of funding cuts.
Teen Dating Violence (DV) Prevention and Awareness Month is a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in teen and 20-something relationships and promote programs that prevent it during the month of February.
The repercussions of teen dating violence are impossible to ignore – they hurt not just the young people victimized but also their families, friends, schools and communities. Throughout February, organizations and individuals nationwide are coming together to highlight the need to educate young people about dating violence, teach healthy relationship skills and prevent the devastating cycle of abuse.
The History of Teen DV Month
For years, young people across the nation have organized to put a stop to dating abuse. With their adult allies, they achieved a major victory in 2005 when the importance of addressing teen dating abuse was highlighted in the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.
The following year, Congress followed the lead of dozens of national, state and local organizations in sounding the call to end dating abuse. Both Chambers declared the first full week in February “National Teen Dating Violence Prevention and Awareness Week.” Then in 2010, they began dedicating the entire month of February to teen dating violence awareness and prevention.
This inclusive family event will take place in downtown Spartanburg on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2013. All women and children and those that love them are invited to join us in dance and have fun while focusing on the spirit of the community and putting a stop to abuse and violence.
Please join us as we dance our way to “No Excuse for Abuse” on Valentine’s Day, 2013!
