Volunteer Opportunities

 Professional Volunteer

Volunteers providing professional services can volunteer on-site supervised by staff members occasionally without having to go through the volunteer training process. If you would like to provide free services to clients off-site, Peace at Home can refer clients, but it will ultimately be up to the clients to reach out for services. The purpose of this policy is to protect the confidentiality of our clients.

 Chat Line Volunteer

Chat Line Volunteers will provide crucial support and immediate response to those in crisis, experiencing trauma, needing support or empowerment, looking for resources, or contacting Peace at Home staff.
