Volunteers are an integral part of our mission to prevent and end domestic and sexual violence, stalking, and human trafficking by fostering a community based on equality and mutual respect through prevention and intervention, community engagement, and awareness, policy and advocacy. We could not do the work we do without help from our volunteers.
- Provide crisis intervention, emotional support, and information and referrals to callers of our 24-hour domestic and sexual violence hotline;
- Serve as co-facilitators for our 18-week, certified domestic violence intervention program for perpetrators of domestic violence;
- Provide hospital accompaniment services;
- Assist with various tabling and outreach events; and
- Complete administrative tasks and provide front desk support.

You can make a difference in our community by sharing your time and talents. Our goal is to make your volunteer experience fulfilling and meaningful. The Domestic & Sexual Violence Services (DSVS) utilizes volunteers in a variety of positions and has created a program that not only helps us meet the needs of our community, but is also flexible enough to meet the needs of today’s volunteer.
We have opportunities for those who want to support clients directly and other work that can support our agency’s operations. Our volunteer opportunities range from one-day special projects to long-term commitments with evening and weekend shifts available. Group/corporate volunteer opportunities where you can serve with your family, friends, or coworkers; this is a good option for those wishing to volunteer with individuals under the age of 21. Additionally, you could choose to serve as a Hotline Advocate from the convenience of your own home.
Volunteers come from diverse backgrounds and bring a wide array of skills to DSVS. Whether you have a few hours or a few days, we are grateful for your time.
