Volunteer at Project Safe

As an organization that began through the dedication of compassionate volunteers, Project Safe continues to deeply value every contribution made by volunteers. Volunteers make it possible for Project Safe to provide victims and survivors of domestic violence with more extensive services than our small staff could provide alone, and volunteers bring energy, enthusiasm, diversity, and new skills to our team. Our volunteer program is always growing, and volunteers have contributed more than 21,000 hours of donated time annually for the last three years.

Because of the safety needs of our clients and the sensitivity surrounding the issue of domestic violence, all volunteers must complete a background check and agree to follow our policies and procedures as explained during training and orientation sessions.   Volunteers in direct service positions are required to receive formal domestic violence training before beginning. Training sessions are scheduled on a needs basis.
