VolunteerHelp us help our community!
Interval House has a rich history of providing exemplary services to survivors of domestic violence and abuse and is on the forefront of efforts to create a violence-free society. Our organization depends on individuals like you to help others in their time of need.
Your energy and compassion can make all the difference in the world to the individuals we serve. Interval House volunteers can help ensure that no matter when it is, or where they are, victims of domestic abuse and violence don’t have to be alone. From answering the 24-hour hotline, to working with children affected by violence, to reaching out to the community to share resources, volunteers help each survivor find their voice and take back their lives.
We invite you to join us in this work. Apply to volunteer today!!
There are several ways you can serve
Direct Service volunteers assist in Crisis and Hotline counseling; facilitate support groups; work with the children’s program; and help in the safety and healing process of those women and children who come to Interval House. Following the interview process and successful background check, each direct service volunteer must complete 40 hours of thorough training. Volunteers who complete the intensive training will then be certified as Domestic Violence Counselors.
Interval House offers speaker’s training sessions for approved volunteers. After successfully completing this four-hour training session, volunteers are able to speak about domestic violence, Interval House and its history, help in approved educational programs, and make presentations at selected public events. This program is under the direction of the Community Educator and all speaking engagements must be approved by him/her.
