About

We are currently looking for individuals who are equipped with the temperament and dedication to the families that often come to our non-profit for help. Our office knows how rewarding helping a child and their mothers can be while they're receiving critical legal and social service needs at our office.

At the Tahirih Justice Center, we offer free legal and social services to immigrant women and girls fleeing gender-based violence. It's hard to pay attention during these legal and social service intakes, retainer signings, and/or check-ins. It is particularly difficult to attend them if there isn't a helping hand available. We are always looking for gentle, compassionate, and client-centered volunteers to help care for our clients while their parent(s) are receiving critical counsel and social service support. This support enables personal security while in the office and legal justice in the United States.

Skills Preferred:

  • Experience with children, ages infant to elementary school-aged
  • Passion for working with and spending time with clients
  • Flexible availability, specifically during the work week.
  • Ability to aid our Operations team with general tasks if client misses an appointment

Since 1997, Tahirih has assisted nearly 20,000 women and children seeking protection against gender-based violence, including sexual assault, domestic violence, human and labor trafficking, plus forced and child marriage. Together with the support of pro bono attorneys and skilled-based professionals such as yourselves, Tahirih helps women and children achieve the legal status they are entitled to under U.S. law. With this freedone, our clients can be free from violence and rebuild their lives in safety and with dignity.

All potential volunteers are required to pass a background check and attend a 4 hour training.
