The Crisis Center provides much needed services to those in our community who have been impacted by Domestic Violence. Our mission is to support survivors of domestic violence through their journey during and after leaving an abusive relationship. Our services include our 24-Hour Crisis Line that is always answered by a real person, an emergency shelter for those in imminent danger, adult and child therapy services, community advocacy, legal advocacy, as well as community outreach and education.

As a Community Outreach Volunteer, you will help us become more in touch with our community by:

  • Attending community events (car shows, fairs, markets, etc),
  • Tabling booths and handing out information about our services and becoming a volunteer,
  • Distributing information at designated locations (flyers at libraries, etc),
  • Assisting in identifying potential outreach and awareness opportunities
  • Helping at collaborative events with other organizations and businesses.

A lot of the work done by Community Outreach Volunteers takes place in the evenings and on weekends. We are very flexible in working around our volunteers schedules, but do ask that they commit to volunteering at least 10 hours a month (unless otherwise discussed with Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator).

Most activities will be held at designated events and areas outside of the Crisis Center, though occasional travel to our shelter may be needed.

Training includes a 2 hour orientation, about 6 hours of online training through Violence Free Colorado, and additional training as needed for learning about our services and elevator speeches.

Volunteers with us will have the opportunity to become more engaged with their community through education and advocacy. However, that means you will have to speak with the public, though normally not a huge crowd. This is a great opportunity for those looking to improve their public speaking and interpersonal skills.
