Volunteer

Volunteers are a vital part of Crisis Connection’s mission to help victims of domestic violence and sexual assault become survivors by fostering hope, promoting self-sufficiency and rebuilding lives. Volunteering at Crisis Connection means being there for someone who needs you, empowering others to believe in themselves and making a difference one person at a time. It also means moving upstream to prevent interpersonal violence before it occurs. Your efforts will be at the heart of our mission and services. There are many ways you can help. We know that individual skills and interests vary and not everyone can make the same time commitment, therefore, we offer several options in different areas of expertise and talent.
