Special Events Volunteer:
Special events volunteers assist with community information tabling, agency fundraisers, and special projects. The time commitment varies.
HAVEN is always in need of volunteers to partner with us to raise funds for things the organization or clients need. If you have a fundraising idea, or would like to help us with a current fundraiser we are holding, we would love for you to join our team.
Community outreach volunteers have the opportunity to work with our Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator to offer educational programs and assistance to members of the community. Community outreach volunteers are not required to take the full domestic violence and sexual assault training, although we strongly encourage it. Community outreach volunteers are also expected to be comfortable speaking to various sized groups of people and interacting with the public in a positive manner.
Hotline Advocates help staff our 24-Hour Hotline and provide crisis counseling, advocacy, support, and referrals to adult and youth victims of domestic violence, rape, sexual assault, and sexual abuse. Advocates are required to make a minimum one-year (two semester) commitment that includes three hotline shifts per month. Comprehensive training is provided.
Direct Service Volunteer:
Direct service volunteers have the opportunity to work one-on-one with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. They have the opportunity to work in our office or as an on-call volunteer for evening and weekend emergency advocacy. All direct service volunteers must complete HAVEN’s full domestic violence and sexual assault training, and are subject to background checks and must submit clearances (provided by HAVEN).

HAVEN volunteers have the opportunity to share their special skills and talents while helping survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Our volunteers contribute their time in a variety of ways, including direct service, community outreach, shelter and office work, youth mentorship, and more.
