Help victims of crime. Become a volunteer Victim Advocate!

There still is time to make a big difference in the lives of victims of crime!

If you are passionate about helping others, empathetic, a good listener, and just want to help people, we’ve got a great volunteer position for you!

The Clackamas County District Attorney’s office is looking for volunteer Victim Advocates who are interested in helping victims of crime. Victim Advocates have the unique privilege of providing crisis intervention and follow-up support to people who are experiencing trauma caused by crime. Advocates respond to hospitals and police stations, keep victims informed of their case status, accompany victims to court (as needed), and support them in exercising their rights under Oregon law.

Many volunteers work full-time jobs along with their volunteer commitment. Advocates must be at least 18 years of age and have reliable transportation and no criminal background. Volunteer trainings will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, starting in February.
