Volunteers, Interns Needed

This unit of the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has taken the initiative for the Saint Charles County community to provide needed services to aid victims and assist them through the system of justice, to avoid being made to feel “victimized” a second time. The mission is to assist these victims of crime to understand  their rights, communicate relevant information about their case, and provide necessary services. Volunteers must provide their own transportation, submit to a criminal check, drug screen and complete our training program. To schedule an interview or to ask any questions, please call Rachel Lenk at 636.949.7900, extension 5811 or email rlenk@sccmo.org
