Get Involved

Volunteer

We are so excited that you are interested in volunteering at Safe Haven. Volunteers play an important role in our organization.

Because volunteers serve at our office and within the shelter, interacting directly with our clients, there is a rigorous training and onboarding process for all volunteers. We do this to help support you in your role and to ensure we always deliver trauma-informed and client-centered services to victims and survivors of domestic violence.

Volunteers are required to complete Domestic Violence Seminar (3 hours) and New Entry Training (9 hours over a two-day period) before they are able to start their position as a volunteer. You can see the upcoming dates for this training here.

Please note, it is not required that you register for these training until after the interview process. We just want you to be aware of the dates to ensure they’ll work with your schedule.
