Kelly and Carla are recruiting supportive adults in Richland, Lexington, Newberry, Sumter, and Clarendon Counties who not only want to serve survivors of sexual assault and abuse, but take action against sexual violence in their community.
Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands Volunteer Program’s 2016-2017 priority needs are to identify superheroes who can provide 24-hour crisis hotline and hospital accompaniment advocacy, facilitate group therapy sessions, assist in our office and with administrative projects, or educate community members about sexual assault prevention and STSM’s services at local events and presentations.
