Get Involved

Volunteers are the backbone of the Tuscaloosa SAFE Center, and the achievement of the Center's goals are best served by the active participation of citizens of the community. Volunteers are viewed as a valuable resource to the SAFE Center, its staff and its patients.

All volunteers will be required to complete an application, an interview, and must pass a criminal background check. Once these steps have been completed, volunteers will then be required to attend a mandatory training session before beginning to assist as a volunteer.

Medical Advocates

A medical advocate fulfills a critical role for our sexual assault patients. You will be on the front lines, bearing witness to the experiences of sexual assault survivors and standing beside them on their healing journey. The SAFE Center provides specialized training to ensure that you are prepared and able to assist each patient with ease and comfort. Head to the Medical Advocacy page for more information. Interested? Contact us at for more information.

There are a variety of ways you can assist in the office -- filing paperwork, creating flyers, assisting with meeting preparation, or grant research to name a few tasks. No two days will be the same!
