The Arlington Victim/Witness Program (part of the Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney) needs volunteers for providing support and information to senior victims of crime. Volunteers will work closely with Victim Specialists in cases involving victims over the age of 60. In most cases, at least one home visit to the senior will be needed. The volunteer may also accompany senior victims to court proceedings. HOURS: as needed, about 4 per week; daytime hours with some flexibility. This volunteer opportunity would be ideal for a retired person.

OTHER REQUIREMENTS: Must consent to and pass a criminal background check (no history of criminal convictions anywhere).
