DSVS volunteers are an integral part of our mission of preventing and ending domestic and sexual violence, stalking, and human trafficking by fostering a community based on equality and mutual respect through prevention and intervention, community engagement and awareness, policy and advocacy. Volunteers receive extensive training and ongoing support while serving our community.
