Become a Crisis Line Counselor or Child Advocate Volunteer Through Education and Advocacy Training 
 - Receive 68 hours of training that qualifies you to work directly with adult and child survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse.
 - Get information detailing how nonprofits meet many needs in our community and become informed about the resources available to assist and support local families.
 - Answer the 24-hour hotline during non-business hours (usually one or two week-nights per month) from 4 p.m. to           8 a.m. the next day. You will have the option to receive a cell phone while on the crisis line so you can still go about your life while supporting survivors of violence.
 - Provide support, assistance and options to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse.

Become a Foster Parent for Pets
 - Provide support, love and a safe home for dogs, cats or other companion animals belonging to women and children living in our Emergency Domestic Violence Shelter Program.
 - Often times, victims of domestic violence choose not to leave an abusive partner because they do not want to leave their pets behind, and many domestic violence shelters, including ours, cannot provide shelter for animals.
 - Help make sure that victims of domestic violence are not held back from seeking safety for themselves and their children due to concerns for the well being of their pets. 
 - Please email if you are interested in signing up to be a temporary foster parent for the pets of our shelter clients. Please provide your name, contact information and the kind of pets you are able to provide a safe home for.

 - Provide child care while mothers are in support groups.

 - Assist staff with promoting awareness and education about domestic violence and sexual assault in the community. 

Support Safety Through Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange Services
