It’s the start of another year and for many people that means it’s time for New Year’s resolutions!
Have you thought about what you want your 2018 to be like? If you want to be more involved with your community, here are a few opportunities we currently have at Peace at Home –
Volunteer with Us
Do you want to do something directly working with families impacted by domestic violence? Do you enjoy working with kids? Every week we host multiple support groups for survivors of domestic violence. We rely on volunteers to provide childcare during the groups and we are currently looking for volunteers to help during any of these support group times:
Monday – 6-7pm
Tuesday – 6-7pm
Wednesday – 6-7pm
Thursdays – 5:30-7:30pm
We ask that volunteers plan to arrive 15 minutes early and stay a few minutes late. Interested volunteers must pass a background check/child maltreatment check and complete 5 hours of training. If you would like to sign up to volunteer, contact Sarah Kresol at firstname.lastname@example.org
Host a Donation Drive
A great way to give back is to organize a donation drive at your school, church, or workplace. When needed items are donated to Peace at Home, we don’t have to purchase them. This means more dollars can go to keeping families safe and helping them transition into long-term housing. You can host a donation drive for any category of needed items like bedding, coats, or canned food. Want more ideas of items the shelter needs? Check out our needs list.
Provide Sustaining Support
You can choose to make a difference for families fleeing domestic violence all year long when you sign up for a monthly gift to Peace at Home. We rely on the support from community members like you to help families find hope and healing after violence. Click here to donate once or monthly. To learn more about different ways to make a gift, contact Eva Terry at email@example.com.
