VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

The Center is currently looking for volunteers for our 29th Annual Duck Race and summer parades! If interested, please contact Kelly for more information at kward@centerforpreventionofabuse.org.

 

If you share our commitment to help all people – women, men and children – to live free from violence and abuse and are looking for a volunteer opportunity which offers you great personal satisfaction and fulfillment as well as the opportunity to make a difference, we would love to hear from you.

The two basic types of volunteer service at The Center are direct and non-direct. Just as it sounds, direct service volunteers work directly with clients one-on-one and in groups. Non-direct service includes such tasks as cleaning; organizing, sorting and/or moving donated goods, clerical or administrative tasks; lawn and gardening; helping with the annual Duck Race fundraiser; and other behind the scenes assistance.

Because of the nature of our agency and the work we do, we are sure you understand why there are strict regulations in place to protect those in our care.

  • Non-direct, one-time volunteer: fully supervised, minimal paperwork needed
  • Non-direct, regular volunteer: agency orientation, background check and paperwork
  • Direct client contact, regular volunteer: fingerprinted, background check and orientation plus 63 .5 hours of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Training
  • Please note that we are unable to guarantee a minimum number of volunteer hours for school requirement.

On behalf of our staff and those we serve, we hope that you will choose to give of your time and talents to The Center. Without people like you, we would not be able to build a safe, peaceful community.
