Volunteer

Help us help our community!

Interval House has a rich history of providing exemplary services to survivors of domestic violence, and is on the forefront of efforts to prevent and break the cycle of abuse. 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 help to ensure that victims of domestic violence don’t have to be alone. From answering the 24-hour hotline to working with children affected by violence, 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!
