Green Haven seeking crisis line volunteers
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Green Haven Family Advocates Inc. is seeking crisis line and safe home volunteers. "Volunteering for Green Haven is one of many ways citizens can show support for creating abuse-free homes in Green County," Alice Franks-Gray, Green Haven executive director, said.

Crisis line volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and agree to take one night a month (3-10 hours per night, based upon their availability) to help cover the 24-hour crisis line. They offer support and listen to those in need. A Green Haven staff member is always available to provide assistance to the volunteer, as needed.

Safe home providers volunteer a room (or two) within their home for those in need. Abuse victims who are unable to stay with family members or friends need a safe place to stay overnight. This volunteer commitment supports a short-term emergency only plan, three nights maximum for those in immediate need with no other resources. "We remove victims from the safe home as soon as transitional housing arrangements are established," Franks-Gray continued. Safe homes are needed throughout Green County.

Both crisis line and safe home volunteers are provided training and support in their roles. For more information or to request a volunteer application, call (608) 325-6489, extension 106 or e-mail:
