Become a Volunteer!
Thank you for expressing interest in volunteering with us! For over forty years, volunteers have played a central role in helping SARSSM provide services to survivors of sexual violence. We would not be able to meet our mission without the efforts and compassion of our many wonderful volunteers.

Volunteer advocates are needed for SARSSM’s 24-hour Helpline serving York and Cumberland Counties. Volunteer advocates listen, provide emotional support, and offer resources. These volunteers also help survivors by accompanying them to the hospital or police station. Through this rewarding volunteer experience you can directly impact a person’s life in a positive way.
We Ask that Volunteer Advocates:

We have many community awareness and fundraising events throughout the year. These include events such as Take Back the Night programs, outreach tabling at community fairs, and our signature (and delicious!) fundraising event, the Chocolate Lovers’ Fling! Whether you have just a few hours a week to a few hours a year for volunteering, we have an opportunity for you!
