Our nonprofit organization provides services such as counseling, parenting groups, and batterer intervention meetings at our main office, as well as providing support to women and children survivors of domestic violence at our shelter. We are always in need of volunteers to work with us, especially in our shelter. Our volunteers provide support to women and children survivors of domestic violence. Comprehensive training and orientation will be provided.
Opportunities now available include:
Volunteering can involve empathetic listening and giving emotional support; it can also involve sharing your personal talents with our residents. Something as simple as cooking a meal together or having a "spa day" with the residents can lift spirits and improve self-esteem. Helping children with their homework or teaching them a craft can improve feelings of self-worth for younger survivors.There are infinite ways to make a difference.
