Summary:

Gateway Domestic Violence Services is the only 24/7 safe and confidential shelter for survivors of domestic violence in all of Aurora and Arapahoe county. In the United States, 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner. It’s paramount that we shine a light on domestic violence and spread the word about our organization as a community resource. Our organization relies on active volunteers like you to help us carry out our daily functions to reach as many as possible.

If you enjoy organizing, sorting, and seeing the direct impact of physical work, we invite you to help make a positive impact for our clients!

Spring cleaning is upon us, which means everyone has donations they want to go directly to help those in need. Whether you’re available for one morning or afternoon or would like to become a regular helper for the donation system, we can utilize you!

You will learn more about Gateway’s vision, our programming including the crisis hotline, shelters, counseling, and court advocacy services, as well as meet some hardworking and generous folks. Sound like something you’re interested in? We’re looking for 2-5 volunteers to sign up today.
