Hope House volunteers are a resource and a strategy for fulfilling our mission. We are always looking for individuals who want to work directly with domestic
violence survivors and in-directly through various office and maintenance tasks.
Volunteers provide a sense of community support to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Many times victims are isolated from friends, family, and anyone who cares for them. After leaving the abusive situation, survivors can find hopefulness and support from a community of volunteers contributing to their success.
Hope House and those we work with are very grateful to all who volunteer their time and resources!
" Even though I have only been volunteering at Hope House for a few months, I have found my time here to be truly rewarding. When the volunteer coordinator asked if I could spend some one-on-one time with a little girl named Annie, I was a bit intimidated. I wasn’t sure how she would respond to me or if I could even keep her entertained. As soon as I met Annie, however, I knew I had nothing to be worried about. She immediately lit up when she found out we would be painting our nails, coloring, and playing games. At the end of the first day we spent together, Annie gave me a big hug and thanked me for spending time with her. During the days at Hope House when I would be making buttons or working at the front desk, Annie often sought me out just to sit and talk – and of course, give me a hug. While we only had a few days of one-on-one time together during Annie’s short stay at Hope House, I feel the time we played and talked were beneficial to the both of us. It was rewarding for me to make a connection with Annie, and I believe the little bit of extra attention and validation was rewarding for her as well."
