Thank you for your interest in volunteering with WRC! We have filled our current volunteer positions and are temporarily suspending the program while we revamp our application and training process for new volunteers! Exciting changes are coming soon, so please check back in late July if you'd like to apply.
Note: this applies to volunteers only. Interns and service groups can still request an application below. Thank you!
Here are some ways you can volunteer:
Crisis Line Advocate
Hotline advocates answer WRC's 24-hour hotline from our confidentially-located safe house. Advocates screen for admittance to the house, help callers create plans for their safety, offer information about WRC's services, explore resources and provide referrals.
Safe House Advocate
Volunteer positions at the safe house include both direct and indirect service opportunities including infant and toddler care, assisting with children's activities, transportation assistance, providing activities or educational opportunities for guests, one-on-one peer advocacy, and organization of donations.
Volunteers spend quality time with child and teenage safe house guests, developing trusting relationships and modeling healthy interactions with others. Mentors help with homework, play games, supervise art projects, facilitate conversation groups, and chaperone outings.
