When you become a HAWC Volunteer you will:
- Make meaningful contributions to your community.
- Build deep connections with people of all ages and backgrounds.
- Develop valuable professional skills such as public speaking, peer counseling, community outreach and legal service navigation.
- Allow HAWC to develop and expand programs that empower survivors and raise awareness about domestic violence.
Meeting the challenges created by the pandemic has meant redesigning & reformulating our operations remotely so that all staff & existing volunteers remain safe. Demand is no less; the rates of intimate partner violence & domestic abuse has only risen in the last 6 months. The urgency is real and as a volunteer, you will directly impact HAWC’s ability to serve survivors.
Because HAWC entrusts volunteers with sensitive and impactful work, we expect every volunteer to uphold the highest quality of care and respect towards staff members and clients. Volunteer opportunities vary depending on skill and time commitment.
