OBITUARIES Volunteer advocates needed for Rape Crisis and Sexual Assault Services Rape Crisis and Sexual Assault Services is seeking volunteers to serve as Victim Advocates in the Augusta area. Volunteer training will be held July 15-19 at University Hospital. Advocates should be able to respond to area hospitals within thirty minutes of being called when a sexual assault case presents. Sexual violence is a crime motivated by control, not sexual desire. Sexual violence is a breach of trust and safety that occurs anytime a person is forced, coerced and/or manipulated into unwanted sexual activity. This can include rape, incest, child sexual abuse, acquaintance rape, statutory rape, marital or partner rape, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, exposure and voyeurism. As the most underreported of all crimes, it is more widespread than most people recognize. One out of six women, and one out of every thirty-three men, will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. Sexual assaults, including rape, remain the most under-reported crimes in our nation; the range of reporting rates for rape and sexual assaults reported to law enforcement vary between 16 and 41%, meaning more than half of all rapes and sexual assaults go unreported. Reporting a crime is one of the most effective tools to prevent future rapes. A trained volunteer advocate from Rape Crisis can accompany a victim at the hospital, law enforcement and court to answer questions about the process and explain how it works. About Rape Crisis and Sexual Assault Services Rape Crisis and Sexual Assault Services has been providing Victim Advocacy for thirty-five years in the Augusta Judicial Circuit, and is now making preparations to expand those services to McDuffie and Jefferson Counties. Volunteers are needed in those counties and surrounding areas, along with Richmond, Columbia, and Burke Counties as well. Working under the auspices of University Hospital, the mission of Rape Crisis and Sexual Assault Services is to provide crisis intervention, advocacy, counseling, and prevention education to men, women, and children. Services include: • 24 hour Crisis Line • Advocacy and crisis intervention • Information and referral • Counseling and support groups • Children's prevention programs • Community education • Promotion of survivor's rights to know and choose possible courses of action If you are interested in becoming a volunteer Victim Advocate, and are able to respond to hospitals in the aforementioned areas, or would like additional information, please contact Dinah Gunn at 706-774-2746 or
