Join our team of dedicated volunteers, and help survivors of domestic violence end the cycle of domestic violence. Volunteer opportunities include:
Crisis Hotline Operator*
Crisis Hotline operators answer calls from domestic violence survivors in crisis, providing them with an assessment to determine the appropriate level of service. We provide crisis counseling, support, information, safety planning, and referrals. Flexible evening and weekend shifts are available. Please note that this volunteer opportunity requires a commitment of at least six months.
Children’s Program volunteers engage in children’s support groups and recreational activities in our Children’s Playroom. Volunteers help role model healthy, non-violent relationships while providing support and assistance to children staying in our shelters.
K-12 School Assistants help the Crisis Shelter Teacher provide lessons and instruction in our Crisis Shelter School. K-12 Assistants help in various ways, ranging from one-on-one tutoring and classroom monitoring to lesson plan preparation and snack distribution.
Service Center volunteers assist with operational responsibilities in our administrative offices. Volunteer duties range from answering phone calls and organizing donations to providing clerical support and helping with large mailings.
Volunteers assist staff with fundraising and communications tasks, as well as community outreach. Duties vary from setting up and tearing down at event locations, managing an informational table, handing out flyers, organizing silent auction items, and selling raffle tickets. This volunteer opportunity is a flexible ad hoc role — we will contact you when events come up to check your availability.
Volunteers lead or co-facilitate workshops on various topics, from health and finances to resume writing and more, to provide advocacy and education to domestic violence survivors. We deliver workshops based on need and availability.
Court Accompaniment volunteers accompany domestic violence survivors to court dates and offer emotional support and advocacy. Volunteers are not intended to give legal services but rather provide survivors with moral support. Volunteers will be contacted by email when a survivor requests a court accompaniment. Please note that this is an ad hoc opportunity based on survivor needs.
