It takes many people working together to provide services and support for our participants. Dedicated volunteers make a difference. They extend and enhance the time and talents of our organization in meeting participant needs. Every contribution is valuable. We work with you to match your time and talent to the ongoing needs of HOPE Family Services.
Trained Volunteer Programs
The State of Florida has created a 24-hour training course (plus 6 hours on the job training) called Core Competency. If you wish to work directly with our participants, it is mandatory to train you using the State curriculum. By taking Core Competency and passing the written test, you receive certification and the knowledge necessary to work in the field of domestic violence. You will also receive “privileged” status, meaning any information shared between you and a participant will be held confidential.
The course is free for those who volunteer.
The course is offered as needed. Core Competency is a total of 30 hours of training, 24 hours of classroom, and 6 hours on the job.
All calls to HOPE and services provided by HOPE are confidential. HOPE Family Services is committed to serving people living with disabilities. HOPE is pleased to provide accommodations, including sign interpreters, translation services and alternative formats of printed materials upon request from persons who are deaf, hard of hearing or are living with disabilities.
