Choose a way to volunteer: 

1. Victim Response

Make a direct impact by becoming a volunteer advocate or crisis-line responder. To volunteer in these capacities, you are required to complete a 40-hour crisis intervention training during which you'll learn proper crisis intervention procedures as well as the effects of sexual violence, court process, and how to provide support in an emergency room. Each year, Hearts of Hope sponsors two volunteer training series. Sign up below to start volunteering!


2. Office Volunteer/ Internship


If you are interested in helping Hearts of Hope, but don’t have the time to commit to the victim advocacy training, you are always welcome help at the office; no work experience is required.

If you're a UL- Lafayette student in undergrad or a graduate school student in a social work program, Hearts of Hope would love to have you on board.
