Volunteers play a vital role in Safehope’s ability to provide quality services in all of our communities. We rely on the generosity of others who share in our desire to work toward ending domestic and sexual violence.
Please consider giving of your time. Volunteers are needed to provide one-on-one support, answer the help line, staff the shelter facility, assist families through the child advocacy center, plan and assist in fundraising and awareness events, educate the public through speaking engagements, provide office support, and many other areas.
Volunteers work as many hours as they are comfortable with. Volunteer training sessions are scheduled several times a year.
For more information, contact our administrative office at 316-803-1800 or complete the Volunteer Application on this website.
