Outreach Volunteers Needed: Help HAVEN Spread the word for all survivors of abuse!

HAVEN serves over 48 towns and cities in the Greater Seacoast area in NH. Our goal is proactively get our hotline stickers, pens, flyers, nail files, rack cards, hotline cards and more out to various businesses and places in the community. Each month we will focus on a specific targeted group-- such as gyms and fitness centers in January, hair & nail salons in July, and pediatrician offices in October. By sharing our information with the community we'll enable survivors of sexual & domestic violence, and stalking, to know how to reach out for help. This also means their loved ones (friends, family, neighbors) can also find us to get support. Lastly, it will enable businesses and other individuals in the community learn about HAVEN so that they can support our mission with financial donations, corporate sponsorships, or by giving time and talents as volunteers.

We ask for a 1 year commitment of ongoing Outreach volunteers

  • We will offer 2-3 opportunities per month for you and send out online signups through Signupgenius.com the month prior, giving you time to plan your schedule.
  • Hours will vary depending on the Outreach activity, but may include weekends, evenings, and week days.

  • Represent HAVEN at resource tables at fairs/ festivals and Meet & Greets.
