ORGANIZATION: Volunteers of America Oregon

  • 164 people are interested

Home Free, our domestic violence prevention program provides survivor centered support designed to prevent people from having to return to abusive homes. Services include a crisis line, housing, intensive case management, restraining order advocacy, support groups, and systems navigation, along with ongoing support. Our volunteers answer the hotline or help survivors with restraining orders. Both positions provide resources and safety planning.

Volunteering with Home Free Is very rewarding and requires a large commitment. You attend 50 hours of training, 40 of which can be done online. The training contains information on the cycle of domestic violence, safety planning, advocacy, community resources and restraining order instructions. Due to the investment in up-front training, we request a 12-month commitment to volunteering once per week for 3-4 hours.

Currently Hotline volunteers are working remotely. The Restraining Order Room Advocates volunteers are located at the Multnomah County Courthouse or working remotely.

Qualifications:

  • Awareness of issues of domestic violence, homelessness, and diversity a plus
  • Bilingual volunteers desired in ANY language!
  • Must be 18 years or older
  • Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 5:00pm for Hotline, 9:00-12:00 for Restraining Order Room Advocate
