CPAF invites you to apply to volunteer as a Hotline Counselor and join our mission to serve survivors of domestic and sexual violence by listening to their stories, believing them, and connecting them to the resources they seek. Volunteer counselors commit to a regular, weekly or bi-monthly shift on weekdays during business hours (9am and 5pm).
