Outreach Center Volunteers provide assistance at our new outreach center by answering calls, assisting with administrative tasks, working on special projects, accepting donations, and greeting clients coming to the center.
The shifts that we are looking for are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10:00am-2:00pm and 2:00pm-6:00pm.
Volunteer Requirements: The role of volunteers at Safe Harbor is so important that there are a number of requirements for volunteering:
Volunteers must complete a background investigation, which volunteers are asked to pay for if they have not lived in Utah for the past five years.
40-hours of volunteer training are required, which includes 20-hours of shadowing, as well as attendance at on-going training sessions.
Volunteers must be over 18-years-old.
Volunteers must comply with all Safe Harbor policies and procedures, including signing a confidentiality agreement.
Given the investment of resources in our volunteers, we require a six-month volunteer commitment.
Who Should Volunteer? While our volunteers have a diverse array of strengths and motivations, the following qualities are especially important to your success as a volunteer at Safe Harbor Crisis Center:
A desire to help others to help themselves.
A clear sense of self. (Personal identity and individual value system.)
Being non-judgmental; unconditional acceptance of others.
Effective communication skills.
Honesty with clients and your own feelings. Note: We cannot accept volunteers with court mandated community service hours.
Why should I volunteer at Safe Harbor? As a Safe Harbor volunteer you know you are making a positive impact in your community and you will:
Help Survivors of Violence: As a Safe Harbor volunteer you will ensure essential services to women, children, and men who are survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault. Your services can help these individuals rebuild their lives.
Gain New Skills: Volunteering at Safe Harbor is an opportunity to build or develop your skill set. Our volunteers receive 40-hours of training!
Network with Professionals: During your time at Safe Harbor you will establish connections with our professional staff and many other committed volunteers, which will help develop your connections in your community.
Increase Your Happiness: Studies have shown that people who volunteer their time and services are happier than those who don’t. Build a happier life and brighter future for you, your community, and violence survivors.
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.
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.
