The Sexual Assault Crisis & Support line needs volunteer advocates

Volunteers are needed to train as Advocates for Sexual Assault Response Services of Southern Maine’s (SARSSM) 24-hour Crisis & Support Line.

Applications are now being taken for a free training session, beginning Wednesday May 4th, and concluding Wednesday May 25th. Held on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m., and two Saturdays, May 7th and 21st 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the 40-hour comprehensive training covers topics such as: the brain’s response to trauma; communication and listening skills; and victim advocacy.  “If you are someone who is willing to listen, who wants to have a rewarding experience, who cares and who wants to make a difference, this is a wonderful opportunity,” says Charlene Powell, SARSSM’s Crisis & Support Line Manager.

The 24-hour Crisis & Support Line assists callers in York and Cumberland counties. Volunteer Advocates work from home, have flexible hours, choose their shifts and do not need any experience.

American Red Cross of Southern Maine to hold Real Heroes Awards Dinner

There are real heroes all around us. They may be people you know or strangers whose good deeds you hear about in the news.  They may be someone who acts bravely in a time of immediate need or someone who lives their lives caring for others.  Real heroes give of themselves because they want to make a difference, and their actions demonstrate the potential that is in us all.
 
What: American Red Cross of Southern Maine’s 14th Annual Real Heroes Awards Dinner, celebrating the selfless actions of heroes in our Southern Maine communities.
