Direct Services Volunteers

Direct Service Volunteers come alongside the WCF staff to help provide services and support to the guests at the shelter. This includes opportunities such as volunteering for Children's Programs, facilitating domestic violence support groups, answering our 24-Hour domestic violence hotline, being a volunteer advocate, hosting cooking classes, arts & craft nights, and other activities for our guests. Direct Service Volunteers are required to complete 5 hours of training which includes training on the history of WCF, Dynamics of Domestic Violence, Children and Domestic Violence, Basic Advocacy, and Hotline / Support Group Training. Trainings are held 2 - 3 times per year.

Indirect Services Volunteers

Indirect Service Volunteers are such a help in keeping the shelter in order and helping with events! These types of opportunities include providing a meal and dropping it off for our guests, organizing donations, assisting with handyman projects around the shelter, conducting a Top 10 Needs donation drive, volunteering at fundraising events and community outreach events. Indirect Service Volunteers are required to tour WCF and complete a background check. Tours are held on the 1st & 3rd Friday of every month.
