About the Assignment
As an Exit Team Member, you are the first “face” of Rescue America that a survivor encounters after calling the hotline. You and one other Exit Team Member(ideally male/female teams) will provide a survivor with prompt, secure pickup and transportation to an assessment center or safe shelter. The pickup and drop off locations are coordinated and directed by an Exit Strategist, who stays connected with you throughout the exit process. This is an on call/as needed role, sending requests via text messages to check availability.
Overview of the Exit Team Process
After confirming with the client that they are ready to be rescued and are in a safe location, an Exit Strategist will contact all qualified Exit Team members asking for a male and a female volunteer, with the location of pickup. An Exit Strategist will then assign the exit team from the members that are available and coordinate further details.
During the rescue, an Exit Strategist will be in continuous contact with the Exit Team members to collect data on the well being of the client. Once the client has been delivered to a safe location, the Exit Team will be asked to fill out a short form with the details of the rescue. On average, rescues take anywhere from 1-3 hours.
