Safe Places cannot do our work without committed volunteers. Volunteers allow us to find creative solutions to help our clients gain self-sufficiency in a way that we could not do before. Being a volunteer with Safe Places means being a support to our staff and clients as they work towards building stable lives free from abuse.
Safe Places offers volunteer roles and commitments for individuals interested in volunteering on a regular basis to opportunities for corporate or church groups interested in community service projects. At Safe Places, we work to match you with the best way to contribute to your schedule and your interests. If you are interested in donating your time review some of the available volunteer roles below, fill out an application using one of the buttons below or contact our Volunteer Coordinator at LaurenB@christianrelief.org.
We always have the need for clerical help to assist with a variety of administrative tasks, data entry, special projects and help with correspondence.
Please Note: Administrative volunteers must have availability Monday-Friday between 9 AM and 5:30 PM.
Volunteers that provide childcare allow our clients to attend therapy, GED or ESL courses, interviews
All Child Care volunteers must have experience caring for children, can provide references, be background checked, interviewed and fingerprinted.
Driving volunteers assist our case managers when clients do not have a reliable mode of transportation.
They may transport a client to a school meeting or court. These volunteers can also assist clients in learning their local bus routes so they can become more self-sufficient.
Groups then help make the beds, set up the kitchen, lay out rugs, hang artwork and more to turn the unit into a home. Finally, the group creates a “welcome home” sign to greet the new resident.
Volunteers will be background checked.
Hospitality baskets vary in type depending on time of year and current need of the clients.
You may be creating welcome baskets with items like candles, artwork, house plants, cleaning supplies or kitchenware items in them, putting together back to school backpacks, thanksgiving bags, holiday gifts or pantry bags.
Our storage facility is only useful if we know exactly what we have. Inventory Volunteers spend the day sorting through the items, categorizing them and organizing our storage facility.
This is a big help to our staff so that we know what our biggest needs are and can offer clients items we already have on hand when the need arises.
Many of our clients struggle with using computers or needs assistance with GED prep, or ESL.
Most tutoring sessions will be held at a local library that is accessible for the tutor and client.
