Volunteers are essential to Sanctuary for Families’ ability to provide high-quality, personalized care to survivors of gender violence, as well as 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 or one day events, for individuals and for groups. Some of our most frequent volunteer opportunities include tutoring and translations (individual), as well as holiday helpers and special events (groups).

New volunteers attend orientation sessions to learn about the complex issues surrounding gender violence.
