1175 Howard St.San Francisco, CA 94105


The Riley Center seeks people 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!

We are currently looking for volunteers who have already completed a 40 hour Domestic Violence advocacy certification, or a comprable certification (SFWAR 65 hour course, 40 hour DVC, etc.) If you are not currently certified, and wish to attend our Fall 2017 training, please specify so in your application. To apply, please fill out application here: For any questions or concerns, please contact Neda at Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Applicants will receive training dates once they are finalized.
