Safe Harbor Crisis Center simply could not operate without our dedicated volunteers. Their helping hands and healing hearts make a difference to all the individuals who turn to Safe Harbor for hope and healing after domestic violence or sexual assault.

If you are interested in making a difference in your community Safe Harbor offers a variety of volunteer positions:

  • Shelter Volunteers help with a variety of tasks including: answering the crisis line, assisting residents with paperwork and meetings, accepting donations, problem solving with residents, welcoming new residents and helping them get settled in the shelter, and assisting with other shelter operations. We have a variety of shifts during the day, evening, and night available. Each shift is 3 to 4 hours long.

If you are interested in being involved with the daily operations of the shelter and assisting our residents contact Ariella to schedule a volunteer interview at 801-682-0127 or email ariella@safeharborhope.org. During the volunteer interview you will discuss your availability, interest and motivation for volunteering at Safe Harbor, and review the volunteer requirements and training schedule.

Each volunteer receives on-going training, which includes orientation, domestic violence training and shadowing.

Mission Statement

Safe Harbor, a non-profit organization, provides shelter, supportive services and advocacy to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as education, awareness and resources to our community.

Description

Safe Harbor Crisis Center is the first and ONLY domestic violence and rape crisis center in Davis County, UT. Safe Harbor Crisis Center opened its doors in 1997 and served more than 300 adults and children in the first year of operation. Since then our services continued to expand to meet survivor and community needs. Our free comprehensive, client-centered services now include: Emergency Protective Shelter; Domestic Violence Outreach Services; Diversity Program; Children’s Services; 24-Hour Crisis Response; Transitional Housing; Sexual Assault Services; Protective Order Assistance; and Community Outreach and Education. Plus, in 2015 we launched an Economic Empowerment Program helps low-income domestic violence survivors with dependent children with job preparedness and work retention. We could not function without volunteers, who donated over 5,000 hours in the last year. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities and hope you will join our team in ending violence in the community.
