Victim Advocate

What does a Victim Advocate do?

ATV's Victim Advocate program is one of the most rewarding opportunities we offer.

Victim Advocates respond to calls from crime victims, law enforcement, and/or hospital staff for victims of violent crime. Advocates meet with victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and other violent crimes to:

  • Provide emotional support, advocacy, crisis intervention, and services referrals
  • Help victims understand their rights and options
  • Inform victims of the services Alternatives to Violence has to offer

A 40-hour training is provided twice a year to throroughly prepare new volunteers to take on the role of a Victim Advocate. Sessions include Domestic Violence 101, Sexual Assault, Crisis Intervention, Sexual Assault Nurse Exaiminer Program, Tour of Loveland Police Department, Grief Counseling, and more.

How to become a Victim Advocate:

  • Attend 40-hour training is offered biannually
  • Must possess open, non-judgmental attitude toward survivors of crime
  • Must be 21 years of age or older
  • Must be willing to complete a background check
