Volunteers are a vital link between between The SAFE Alliance and the community, providing support in every aspect of our mission to end sexual assault and exploitation, child abuse, and domestic violence. For more information, contact us at [email protected].
We have community engagement opportunities for folks who would like to get connected with our mission and issues quickly. View our events calendar to see what is available.
Group and Special Event Volunteering
Do you want to volunteer with a group of friends or coworkers? SAFE needs volunteer groups to host activities for the people we serve, as well as host facilities projects (such as sorting donations, painting, etc.). We also have several opportunities each year for groups and individuals to volunteer at our fundraising events, and around the holidays. Click here for more information and to sign up.
The mission of the SAFE Guild is to provide activities that enhance the lives of those we serve, support the SAFE holiday programs, development efforts and events, and increase community awareness of SAFE and its work. We’d love to have you join us! This opportunity is for people who want to volunteer, at most, once or twice per month and does not require going through the Individual Volunteer Orientation. Click here to join the SAFE Guild’s online community and to RSVP for upcoming events.
Professional Volunteer Opportunities
We welcome the involvement of community members offering their professional skills and services to the agency and its clients. Agency clients often have a wide range of needs, some not possible for SAFE to meet directly. Partnering with the community is an important way to help ensure these needs are met in the fullest possible way. Join us at a Volunteer Info Session for more information.
Direct Service Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers at SAFE often serve as the first hope for survivors, offering support during sexual assault forensic exams or a compassionate presence in court or the shelter. Volunteers work daily with children and youth in our residential cottages, therapeutic classroom, after-school programs, and other areas across SAFE.
SAFE’s daily operations also require support from volunteers in areas that involve limited client interaction, such as staffing booths in the community, assisting at our charter school, early childhood education centers, providing workshops for life skills classes, and much more.
Take a look at our Direct Service Volunteer Requirements.
Attending a volunteer info session is the best way to get involved as a direct service volunteer. Once a volunteer has attended an info session, they are then eligible to attend a 40-hour volunteer and/or children’s and youth training. Trainings are held three times per year.
