We are actively recruiting volunteers to join our team once in 2021!
Shelter for Help in Emergency works to support and empower victims of domestic violence through a combination of trauma-informed residential, community-based, and outreach services. The Shelter relies on volunteers as an integral part of our team to help us achieve our mission of ending domestic violence in our community.
Our Shelter/Hotline Volunteers assist staff in answering our 24-hour hotline and supporting clients at our residential facility. As an important part of our team, the Shelter/Hotline Volunteer receives comprehensive training on issues of domestic violence, agency services, trauma-informed interventions, community resources, self-care, advocacy, and cultural humility. Shelter/Hotline Volunteers are often the first contact for those seeking information and assistance from the organization. They will assist callers with information regarding agency services, community resources and referrals, and safety planning. Volunteers will also assist residents at the Shelter and help ensure a safe, supportive environment.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
