International Women’s House prioritizes the safety and health of our residents and staff.
Therefore, during this time of global health crisis, we are not inviting volunteers to our shelter. We hope that at sometime in the not-too-distant future, we will be able to once again welcome on-site volunteers. In the meantime we invite you to submit your volunteer application below and check back regularly for volunteer opportunities.
Volunteers make it possible for IWH to provide better services to our clients, and each volunteer brings a unique perspective that enhances the recovery of our clients’ lives.Click to Volunteer
Join us in making a difference!
Volunteer with International Women’s House and help empower survivors on their journey towards safety, healing, and a brighter future. The opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life is at the heart of the volunteer experience. At International Women’s House, we recognize that volunteers are a valuable resource and our best ambassadors. Volunteers make the choice to help. Simply, because they care, volunteers have a far-reaching positive impact on our clients and the community.
Each year our volunteers provide countless hours of service to International Women’s House. We simply could not provide life-changing services to victims of domestic abuse and their families without the support and commitment of our volunteers. We hope you’ll join us as we strive to achieve our mission of providing help and hope to those affected by domestic abuse.
How Can I help
We know that individual skills and interests vary and that not everyone can volunteer the same amount of time. Therefore, we offer many opportunities with various time commitments.
All volunteers must undergo a background screening, complete the Statement of Confidentiality, sign the Volunteer Consent Agreement, and complete an orientation. If you’ve had prior domestic violence training or experience, please provide proof of equivalent training and/or experience.
