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.
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.
