Volunteers are essential to Sanctuary for Families' ability to provide high-quality, personalized care to victims of domestic violence and to accomplish many agency goals and objectives.

Sanctuary works to match each volunteer with opportunities that meet his/her experience, skills, and availability. Opportunities exist for ongoing-projects, one day events, individual projects and group projects. Volunteers have worked on projects such as tutoring, holiday helpers, special events, and translation.

In addition to the time spent volunteering, new volunteers attend orientations and participate in our on-going training program to learn about the complex issues surrounding domestic violence.
