SCOTTY’S HOUSE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS

  

Scotty’s House is now offering volunteer opportunities throughout Washington County.

Scotty’s House is looking for individuals, 18 years of age and older, to join its Washington County Ambassador volunteer team.  Responsibilities include:  distributing education materials, staffing information booths at local health, agency, and community fairs, and delivering meals to local Multi-disciplinary Team meetings.  Orientation and training will be provided in Brenham.

Scotty's House is the Child Advocacy Center of the Brazos Valley. Founded in 1995, it is our mission to provide safety, healing and justice for children victimized by abuse through professional assessment, counseling and education in a compassionate and collaborative approach.  For more than 20 years, Scotty’s House has been privileged to serve the following counties: Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Leon, Madison, Robertson and Washington.  The mission of the Volunteer Services Program is to support Scotty's House through the sharing of volunteer resources with the agency's forensic, counseling, education, and outreach staff.

Today, 185 Texas children will be victims of abuse.  Of the total number of Texas children served by a Children’s Advocacy Center last year, 71% were involved in sexual abuse cases, 95% knew their perpetrator, and 25% were not old enough to attend kindergarten.  Child abuse is entirely preventable, but not without your help.  Scotty’s House is now offering volunteer opportunities in Washington County.

Anyone interested in applying as a volunteer must complete a volunteer application packet, submit to a criminal background check, and attend an initial interview prior to being accepted into the Ambassador program.  Interviews and trainings will be provided in Brenham.  The application packet is available for download on the Volunteers/Interns section of our website at www.scottyshouse.org. To request to have an application packet mailed to you, or to learn more about the volunteer program, please contact Melanie at mscarpace@scottyshouse.org or call (979) 703-8813.

It’s your turn to make a difference! Everyone has a role to play in child abuse prevention.

If you suspect a child is being abused or neglected, it is your responsibility to make a report to the Texas Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-252-5400, or online at www.txabusehotline.org.
