Become a Volunteer

Want to help? REACH volunteers bring creativity, energy and empathy to support the work of supporting survivors and creating community change. We offer short- and long-term volunteer opportunities, including direct service (hotline, shelter, childcare), fundraising, and community education.

How can you help us? If you…

  • Are patient and like having fun with kids. Become a childcare services volunteer.
  • Can respond to individual needs with flexibility and calm. Become a residential direct service volunteer.
  • Enjoy planning events and seeing them through. Consider our Reach for the Stars event committee.
  • Have a green thumb, enjoy mowing the lawn, prefer to be behind the scenes. Join our house maintenance volunteer team.
  • Are willing and able to carry heavy things. Be part of a team that periodically helps survivors move into new housing.

Get connected to REACH in three steps:

  1. Application:  Read about our volunteer opportunities then submit your Volunteer Application to the Community Engagement Specialist.
  2. Interview: Tell us about your interests and experiences. Together we will match you with the appropriate opportunity.
  3. Training: Direct service volunteers must complete 35 hours of training. Other opportunities require up to six hours of training. All training is free.

We look forward to working with you soon!
