The Alexandria Domestic Violence Program needs volunteers to work as Shelter Supervisors at the Battered Women's Shelter.
As a program that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, volunteers play a key role in providing services to those affected by domestic violence. Volunteers with our program interact personally with individuals in need--an opportunity that many find extremely fulfilling. Primary responsibilities include answering the crisis hotline and supporting the women and children residing at the safe house.
Volunteers are y needed for weekend overnights . We do provide a bed to sleep in.
The Alexandria Domestic Violence Program is dedicated to the fair, compassionate and respectful treatment of all survivors of intimate partner violence regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, religion, sexual orientationor gender identity or expression
