The Safe House/Helpline volunteer works one 4-hour shift per week. Bilingual applicants a plus!
The helpline is a 24/7 support line to victims, their families and others looking for support and information about domestic violence. In addition, it is the primary contact for the community in terms of JBWS program and staff.
Safehouse volunteers also assist clients and/or staff with a variety of tasks, including trasportation, making up rooms for new clients, getting supplies for clients and special project office work.
Volunteers allow our staff to focus their time and energies on providing direct services to our in-house clients and their families.
Prospective volunteers are required to attend a 40-hour training course which is held twice a year, spring and fall. Volunteers must complete an application, reference checks, fingerprinting and an interview before beginning the training.
To begin this process, please visit http://jbws.org/volunteer.html to access our on-line application.
