Victim Advocate Volunteers Sought

Want to give back to your community by helping those in crisis?

The Thornton-Northglenn Victim Services Unit is accepting applications for volunteer victim advocate positions. Advocate volunteers provide on-scene crisis support to victims and witnesses of violent crimes, sudden death and other emergencies.
Becoming a victim advocate is a big responsibility, but the rewards are immeasurable!

“I get asked all the time how I do what I do,” said Victim Advocate Supervisor Vira Herrera. “It's rewarding to be there for someone in crisis, or who has just experienced something difficult. I help them through possibly one of the hardest times of their life. To be a small glimmer of hope or light for them in a dark time can make a real difference.”

If you think becoming a victim advocate is for you, learn more by calling 720.977.5172.
