Colorado Gives Day 2018

Colorado Gives Day 2018 is December 4th and the Arkansas Valley Resource Center is calling everyone out there to give, Give, GIVE! As a non-profit, community based agency, AVRC is funded in part by donations, and a donation to AVRC is a donation to the victims of violent crime in the counties of Bent, Crowley, and Otero. This includes support for AVRC to provide continuing services to those victims, and contributions to ongoing projects such as the Blair House Fundraiser. In addition to donating directly at the AVRC office and the DONATE button that can be found on this website, donations can be sent through the PayPal Giving Fund, which gives AVRC an extra 1% on top of your donations from November 27th through December 31st. That 1% could make a BIG difference, so please make sure to donate via the following link:

Donating isn’t just limited to money and material goods; time and skills are also incredibly valuable donations! AVRC is always looking for volunteers to join the team, working on anything from office operations to direct victims services. AVRC recognizes that the time, energy, and skills provided by volunteers are as valuable a donation as any!

If you are interested in giving back, or have any questions about donating to AVRC or about AVRC’s services, feel free to contact AVRC Staff!

FAQ: Does AVRC utilize volunteers?

Arkansas Valley Resource Center relies on volunteers from the community to support its mission. We have multiple areas in which people can volunteer.  We can use help with fundraising, office tasks, Board of Directors and direct client services.

In order for our volunteers to provide direct client services they need to complete enough training to be able to protect the privilege and confidentiality of victim’s of crime.  Our training period consists of at least 60 hours but we do not require a specific time frame for that to be completed. We do hope anyone who invests the time in training would be willing to commit to a year of service, but this is negotiable with the needs of the volunteer in mind.

If this training requirement isn’t something you can commit to we still have other areas that we need assistance.  Contact our Volunteer Advocate at (719) 384-7764 to complete an application.
