Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
RESPOND, Inc. partners with individuals, families and communities to end the serious public health issue of domestic violence. RESPOND strives to achieve its mission through prevention, intervention, advocacy and direct services that promote safe, healthy relationships.
RESPOND provides emergency shelter and a range of support services to thousands of survivors of domestic violence each year including adults, children and teens regardless of race, religion, gender or other characteristic. RESPOND staff work with survivors of domestic violence to address their immediate and long-term needs, providing emotional support, counseling, intensive advocacy, information and referrals. Through RESPOND’s programs, individuals and families in crisis develop the concrete tools necessary to regain control of their own lives--from parenting skills and housing search to literacy skills, and the hands-on experience of advocating for themselves. Services are free, confidential and currently offered in multiple languages. The Crisis Hotline is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All other Community Services are available Monday-Friday, 9am to 5pm, by appointment and for walk-ins.
