Voice of Hope, formerly known as the Lubbock Rape Crisis Center, was established in 1975 to help women who are victims of sexual assault through medical, counseling and judicial support. The organization also travels around to various middle schools and high schools, educating children about healthy relationships and how to prevent sexual assault.

Timmons said that last year alone, there were over 300 reported cases of sexual assault. She added that a majority of cases like these tend to go unreported, so that number may be even higher.

Voice of Hope is looking for advocacy volunteers to help assist victims of assault. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and must complete a 40 hour training session in order to participate. To find out more about the services offered by Voice of Hope or to volunteer with them, call them at 806-763-7273 visit their website at

Be sure and tune in to Lubbock’s First News with Tom Collins and Laura Mac weekdays from 6 AM to 8:30 AM on NewsTalk 790 KFYO and online at
