How Can You or Your Organization Help?
Verity’s 24/7 sexual assault crisis hotline is truly the core of all Verity services for survivors of rape and sexual assault, and an entry-point to additional support services. Rape crisis counselors ensure survivors know they are not alone and, most importantly, that the assault was not their fault. We support survivors in choosing their path in this life changing process, while providing tools that will
empower each survivor to reclaim their life.
To make a donation of stock, or for other options of planned giving, please contact Verity Executive Director, Christine Castillo, at 707 545 7270 ext. 21.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
Become a Verity Volunteer
Please give consideration to these volunteer positions. By volunteering at any level in the organization you will learn about the true nature of sexual assault and how it affects each and every person in our society — from the victims and their loved ones, to the many prejudices and misconceptions that surround sexual violence and abuse. As a Verity volunteer, you not only have the opportunity to help people at a very fragile time of their life, but you now become a part of positive social change as well.
Volunteers are needed in all of the following areas:
- Prevention Educators – we will train you to speak to youth on sexual assault, sexual harassment, and alternatives to violence. Sexual assault prevention workshops are offered to any community group requesting information on child abuse and general sexual violence issues. Leave a message in the Prevention Education Manager’s voice mailbox (707) 545-7270 x12.
- Crisis Line Counselors – we will train you in listening skills, crisis counseling and community resources. Please email the Intervention Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
- Board of Directors – we are looking for energetic people committed to ending sexual violence. No previous board experience required; we will train you. Please leave a message in the Executive Director’s voice mailbox: (707) 545-7270 x21.
- Fundraising – Help out at a fundraising event or an event during Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April . Please leave a message in the voice mailbox for Communications: (707) 545-7270 x15.
