Are you interested in helping the community, promoting self care, and working with Survivors of Domestic Violence? If so, Saint Vincent de Paul's Riley Center is looking for Volunteers! We will be holding our next training this coming April, with interviews taking place in February. If you are interested in receiving the 40 hour Domestic Violence advocacy training at no cost for personal growth, please email us at

The Riley Center seeks volunteers committed to:

  • Supporting survivors of Domestic Violence.
  • Challenging all forms of oppression that contribute to intimate violence.
  • Developing valuable counseling, facilitation, and leadership skills.

We offer support to survivors through our hotline, community office, emergency shelter, transitional housing program and children's program. Our volunteer support is an essential piece in delivering these services! We believe that survivors are fully capable of making empowered choices for themselves. It is our role to support survivors in identifying and expanding their options by utilizing an intersectional feminist, peer-based model.

Join us as we strive to create safer communities for all of us!

After completing our 40-hour Domestic Violence advocacy training (next training is in March, 2018), you will be able to work with survivors in any of the mentioned programs.

To apply, please fill out application here: Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Applicants will receive training dates once they are finalized. If you have any questions, please email our Volunteer Coordinator at
