Many of us are drawn to this work because we are ourselves survivors of domestic violence and/ sexual assault. While volunteering with CORA may be a healthy part of a survivor's healing process, it could also be triggering and elicit intense feelings. For this reason, we believe that psychological well-being and self-care should be priorities for anyone engaged in this field-survivor or not.
It is CORA's policy to provide equal opportunities without regards to ethnicities, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, or ability. Thank you for completing this application form and for your interest in volunteering with us. All information will be kept confidential and on file for one year.
