Volunteer Information

Airdrie Victim Services is a volunteer based organization working in partnership with the RCMP, to provide support to victims of crime and/ or tragedy. Our services would not be the same without a dedicated team of volunteers. These loyal volunteers engage in tasks such as:

Daytime & Evening Crisis Advocates– Victim advocates provide assistance, support, information and referrals to victims or crime and/ or tragedy in Airdrie and surrounding areas, through crisis intervention and timely follow up.

Court support Volunteer – Court support volunteers primarily assist victims in the court process with information, support and referrals.

Volunteer Awards

The annual Golden Heart Award is awarded in memory of Marlene Le Blanc who served as a volunteer and staff member of ADVAS. The Golden Heart Award is awarded to those who have shown outstanding, selfless efforts to reach out to victims and have extended above and beyond what is expected by the volunteer and their position.

The nominees for this award are chosen by fellow ADVAS volunteers who have all shown great dedication and commitment throughout 2018.

We are often faced with many struggles, complicated files, tough clients, and at most times, a high file load.

As previously said by an advocate “this is such a dynamic group of volunteers. Everyone has something unique and special to offer. Everyone supports each other and is amazing with victims”.

We are forever grateful for the wonderful jobs our volunteers do so well.

Golden Heart Award Recipient 2018

In 2018 Sue logged over 216 volunteer hours. This is an average of 21 hours per month. Dedication is certainly something to be said for this volunteer as we celebrate Sue’s 10 years of service with ADVAS this year.

Sue is an advocate who tirelessly goes out of her way not only for victims, but also her fellow advocates. Understanding, compassionate, caring, and fun are words often used to describe her. Sue’s outstanding efforts to reach out to victims and extend above and beyond what is expected of her in this volunteer role has not gone unnoticed.

Peers will tell you, “She continues to be a giving, caring volunteer who is a great friend and mentor not just for the team, but for all of us.”, “Always going above and beyond for every volunteer and shows compassion for each of us and all victims”.

Thank you Sue, for continuing to support the victims in our community with your upbeat spirit, your incredible knowledge and continued support to your team members and peers, to help them to succeed and be the best they can be.
Congratulations Sue.
