About

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at SafeHouse Center! We have a rich history of providing exemplary services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and are in the forefront of efforts to create a violence-free society. We invite you to join us in this work. All gender identities are welcome to apply for all volunteer positions.

Response Teams Volunteers respond on weekends, to provide immediate crisis intervention to survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. Volunteers meet with survivors in the hospital and jail setting to offer support, information and advocacy immediately following incidents of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as respond by phone when necessary. A valid driver’s license and access to a reliable vehicle are required for this program. On-call shifts are 8am-8am Saturday to Sunday, 8am-8am Sunday to Monday. Required to sign up for 3 shifts a month.

Note: Due to insurance requirements, Response Team Volunteers must be at least 21.

We do require 40 hour training be completed in full before volunteering with survivors can begin.
