Victim Services seeking local volunteers

New recruits needed at Victim Services Unit in Mission

Mission’s Victim Services Unit is hosting information sessions for anyone interested in jointing the organization.

Victim Services provides emotional support to victims, witnesses and other traumatized individuals, and the volunteer will follow a case through until the end, liaising with police and providing court updates. They can make referrals to other agencies and lead clients through a court process.

They are recruiting people with a desire to help in their community, said Gina Lehmberg, victim services coordinator.

Applicants must be at least 20 years old, of good character, have no criminal record and have a valid driver’s license with a clean driving record.

Volunteers are expected to put in one four-hour office shift per week, four 12-hour call-out crisis shifts per month, and attend one three-hour staff meeting per month.

If you would like to be a part of this dedicated and hard-working team, register for one of the 60-minute information sessions by calling 604-820-3538. Classroom training will take place in November.
