"I started volunteering on the help line because I don't want any domestic violence victim to feel stuck and alone in their current situation.  I also don't want any children to have to witness domestic violence or experience it first hand.  As a child, I witnessed domestic violence in my home.  I saw how members of my family internalized the abuse and lacked the resources, support, and voice to leave.  If I am able to help someone take the steps toward freedom from abuse, then there is one less victim and hopefully one less perpetrator."  -EB, Helpline Volunteer


  • Communications/Social Media. 

  • Information Tables at events ie: Health Fairs and Farmer's Markets

  • October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  A number of awareness events are scheduled that require assistance for set up, breakdown and some additional work at the actual events.  

  • We are also working on a few other awareness events during October, so we'd need you then too!

  • Special Event help like folding programs or mailing invitations, putting together packages.

All of the above asks for volunteers as-needed.  There is no particular regularity to the schedules.  For more information:
