Whether you’re an artist, a contractor, a retired teacher, or simply enjoy gardening and working to beautify the neighborhood we are grateful for any amount of time and energy you’re willing to dedicate.

Volunteer Areas of Interest:

  • Office Support

CVC has been exceptionally grateful for several one-time Fundraisers throughout the year.  We’ve recieved bins packed full of Toy Donations, beautiful Art Project Donations, Raffle Proceeds, and several other philanthropic donations of resources throughout the year.

Additionally, you can shop through Amazon Smile and select Crime Victim Center as your charity of choice. CVC will receive up to 0.5% of the purchase price.




CVC does welcome interns to apply, but due to the limited staff we can only accommodate 1-2 per semester. However, those students who wish to carry out their internship at Crime Victim Center will receive an excellent understanding of the inner workings of our agency.


In addition to these opportunities, feel free to contact Direction of Prevention Education Amy Blackman at (814) 455-9414 with any other ideas or suggestions. The staff at CVC look forward to meeting you. Thank you for continuing to make a difference in our community.
