Job Summary

The world for many domestic abuse victims can be lonely, isolated, and filled with fear. Sometimes reaching out and letting them know that you are there for them can provide tremendous relief. The Retreat needs your support in writing notes and cards offering encouragement, letting our clients know they are not alone and our community cares about them.

Responsibilities

Use your own supplies or those provided by The Retreat to write notes that will be delivered to our clients.

Things to know before becoming a volunteer

When your volunteer application is received, the Volunteer Coordinator will contact you about attending an orientation session. All new volunteers must attend this orientation.
In order to ensure the safety and security of our clients and staff, all positions working directly with clients or in our residential shelter require fingerprinting and a background check.
Volunteers who are interested in being trained to answer the 24-hour hotline must commit to a regular volunteer schedule of at least six months and complete in-person training during The Retreat’s regular office hours.
You must have your own transportation if attending Retreat events or coming to any of The Retreat’s physical locations.
