SARC Holds Basic Crisis Response and Hospital Companion Trainings

Bel Air, Maryland – SARC, a non-profit working to stop the pattern of violence in our community,  is looking for volunteers to participate in their quarterly 26 Hour Basic Crisis Response Training and 8 Hour Hospital Companion Training in January.

Since 1978, SARC has provided hope and resources to victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse and stalking. Services are provided at no cost to victims and their families. These include 24 Hour Helpline, counseling, legal representation, a 28 bed confidential safe house, and community outreach and education.  Many of these services are made possible by dedicated volunteers, all of which go through these crucial trainings. These trainings include information on the dynamics of domestic & sexual violence, as well as methods for crisis response & intervention in order to prepare volunteers to answer crisis calls on the 24 Hour Helpline and be an advocate for victims at Harford County hospitals.

SARC’s 26 Hour Basic Crisis Response will take place on:

Saturday, January 5th, 9:00am-5:00pm

Sunday, January 6th, 9:30am-4:00pm

Tuesday, January 8th, 5:30pm-9:00pm
