Joining our team as 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 advocacy, peer counseling, community outreach and legal service navigation.
- Directly impact HAWC’s ability 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 risen exponentially during the pandemic. The urgency is real and the agency’s ability to respond effectively is in part due by our invaluable team of volunteers.
Volunteer opportunities vary depending on skill and time commitment whether you’ve got a few hours to give to help with IT needs or renovating spaces in our shelter and up to a deeper commitment as a legal advocate or hotline volunteer.
**Currently we have a great need for volunteers to serve in legal advocacy. The ideal volunteer has daytime availability, is able to commit to 30+ hours of training, can commit to at least 4 hours of serving per week and is able to commit to at least a year of volunteering. Training begins on February 22, 2021 so secure your spot now!

Turn your volunteer experience into a social activity by bringing your family, friends, and co-workers along! In the office, at the shelter, or during special events, HAWC can use all the hands it can get! HAWC offers many opportunities for workplace activism, but if you want your group to get involved in other ways, let us know!
