If you can make time to help us, we can find a way to put your talents to good use. Whether you are interested in a short term project or a long term commitment of a few hours a week or a month, there’s always something you can do.

Many of our volunteer and intern positions require special training, like working on one of the hotlines or advocating for crime victims. We make sure you're well trained before you have that responsibility. Sometimes we need clerical help filing and answering phones. Often there are special events on the horizon. We can really use people who are well organized and enjoy fundraising. Or you may have a special project you want to research for school, or an internship you’d like to spend with us.

We’d love to find a few good volunteers and interns with expertise in grant writing, graphic arts, and marketing.

These are just a few of the volunteer and intern opportunities available.

We benefit from many grants that help underwrite the costs of our services, but it’s never enough. We rely on donations from all of you to keep us growing and serving more families every year. Every dollar counts and we appreciate the continued generosity of our friends and neighbors.
