SafeJourney Program Seeks Volunteers to Help Victims of Domestic Abuse

SafeJourney, a program serving North Memorial Medical Center and Maple Grove Hospital, helps patients and individuals in the community who are experiencing domestic abuse. Volunteer advocates are needed to provide a listening ear, support, safety planning, information and referral. You do not have to have previous knowledge or experience, but rather looking for people who are sensitive to the issue, caring, and non-judgmental. Advocates sign up for two on-call shifts per month. Flexible scheduling - daytime, overnights, and weekends.  Training is March 4, 6, 11 & 13, 5:30-9 p.m. at North Memorial. Attendance at all four evening sessions is required.
