DANBURY, CT - The Women’s Center is now accepting applications for our fall 2017 dual Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Certification program. This 48-hour training class certifies volunteers to perform crisis intervention at the Center during business hours or from home when the Center is closed; it is a prerequisite for court advocate, counselor advocate, group facilitator, and other advanced direct service volunteer positions. Day and evening training classes begin Tuesday, September 5th, and meet through late month in the Center’s 2nd floor Training Room at 8 West Street in Danbury.

During the last fiscal year, the Women’s Center responded to over 2,000 sexual assault and domestic violence hotline calls, in addition to providing emergency shelter, counseling services, advocacy services, community education and prevention programs, and information and referral services. More than 26,000 clients in the greater Danbury area were served by the Center’s programs and services.

Whether staffing hotlines, running support groups, providing individual counseling, or working in our shelter, YOU can help to end the violence by visiting the Volunteer page of our website at www.wcogd.org to apply. Please call the Volunteer Coordinator at (203) 731-5200, ext. 202, or email elizabeth.i@wcogd.org, for more information. Space is limited and all prospective volunteers must apply by August 25th.

Because abuse does not discriminate, and to insure that our services are responsive to the needs of all individuals, we are actively recruiting volunteers who reflect the diversity of the greater Danbury community. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age; male and bilingual volunteers are encouraged to apply. There is a $50 per person materials fee to help defray the cost of the manual (waivers are available for qualified candidates), and a background check will be done.

The Women’s Center provides free and confidential services to prevent or lessen the trauma associated with domestic violence, sexual assault and other major life transitions to thousands of women, children and men annually. The programs of the Women’s Center are supported by state and local government, area United Way agencies and the people and businesses in the communities we serve including Bethel, Bridgewater, Brookfield, Danbury, Kent, New Fairfield, New Milford, Newtown, Redding, Ridgefield, Roxbury, Sherman, Warren and Washington, CT.
