We couldn't provide the services we do without the ongoing support of a large and active network of volunteers. There are many ways volunteers work with and support us. Here are some of them.
As a volunteer with Family Violence Project, you might...
- Take calls on our 24-hour Helpline – from the comfort of your home and with back-up support from a staff person, whenever you feel you need it.
- Co-facilitate, with a staff member, one of our weekly support groups.
- Provide childcare for children whose parent(s) attend our weekly support groups.
- Provide in-office clerical services like shredding, copying, assistance with mailings.
- Help out at special events such as yard sales, vigils, wellness events.
- Sponsor families for the holidays.
- Donate goods or services.
We give you the support and training you need!
If you volunteer to work directly with clients, we require successful completion of our 40-hour volunteer training, which we offer two times each year. You must also successfully complete a background check and reference checks, and sign a confidentiality agreement.
Family Violence Project's next volunteer training will be held in Augusta soon. Click here to download our flyer with all of the information!
Help us fundraise!
Please consider coordinating a special event – on your own or through your church or community group – and donating the proceeds to Family Violence Project. Fundraisers like penny drives, bottle drives, car washes, and bake sales are a great way to help. You could also collect anything on our wish list -- from cell phones to shampoo – and bring whatever you collect to us. Having basic supplies on hand helps us help the people who come to our shelters in a very tangible way.
