Crisis Line Responders
The Crisis Line is the heart of our organization's services and often serves as the first point of contact for sexual assault survivors. Staff members answer the line during business hours and volunteers answer the line from the comfort of their home during the evening, weekend, and holiday hours. A 40 hour training and commitment to answering the line at least three shifts a month is required of all volunteers.
Board of Directors
STAR is currently accepting applications for the board of directors. Board members are the fiduciaries who steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies, as well as by making sure STAR has adequate resources to advance its mission. For more information, please contact Executive Director Keeley Olson at [email protected] or call
STAR hosts a variety of awareness building events throughout the year, especially during the month of April which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). Event Volunteers assist the Events Coordinator and SAAM Planning Committee in planning events to bring attention to the problem of sexual assault and support for STAR.
Fundraisers allow STAR to fund educational and direct services that might not receive grant funding. STAR hosts fundraisers throughout the year including The Vagina Monologues in February, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes in April and the Masquerade Ball in October. Volunteers can assist in planning these events, soliciting donations from local businesses, or assist the Events Coordinator the day of the fundraiser. Email [email protected] if this might be fun for you or someone you know!
In order to spread the word about services, STAR participates in a variety of events with educational booths. These events include Sportsman’s Show, the Women’s Show, Pride Fest, amongst many others! Volunteers assist in setting up booths, handing out brochures, and answering questions about STAR’s services.
