Key characteristics for a Volunteer Position with Victim Resources include ability to:

·     Listen carefully and follow protocol

·     Mobilize at various times of day, depending upon the time of death.

 If you are a compassionate individual, engaged in healthy self-care, and wishing to provide support to others
during difficult and challenging circumstances, please contact:
