Victim safety and confidentiality are the top priorities of our agency and our mission. Volunteers wishing to work directly with victims and their children, or those interested in representing our agency through community awareness activities, are asked to make a commitment to the organization by completing the volunteer orientation and training, criminal background check, and a detailed interview with the volunteer coordinator. There are also volunteer opportunities available for groups or those unable to make large time commitments.
