VOLUNTEER

   OPPORTUNITIES

The Center for Abused Persons (CAP) always has volunteer opportunities available! If you are interested in filling a position listed below, please fill out the Volunteer Application and email or mail it to our office. Classroom instruction and field training are provided for all volunteers. 

VOLUNTEER ROLES

Hospital Outreach

CAP and University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center work together to provide treatment to adult, adolescent, and child victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. While Forensic Nurse Examiners provide specialty medical care, CAP volunteers offer support to victims and provide information and resources for follow-up care. 

Court Advocacy

CAP volunteers provide court advocacy to victims of intimate partner and/or sexual violence, accompanying victims to protective order hearings and offering support as victims participate in court proceedings.

Crisis Hotline

CAP operates the only 24-hour crisis hotline in Charles County. Hotline counselors provide telephone crisis intervention, brief counseling, and information and referral services. Volunteers may work on the hotline while under the supervision of the Hotline Supervisor.

Community Education

Volunteers may promote CAP at local fairs and other community events. They may also receive training to educate Charles County citizens about intimate partner violence and sexual assault through speaking engagements at schools, businesses, churches, or other community organizations.

Teenage Volunteers

CAP is proud to be included on the Board of Education's approved list of local service learning sites! High school student volunteers may put up CAP posters, distribute information about CAP in the community, collect used cell phones (three phones earns one hour of community service), and/or fundraise for CAP.
