A Vital Role

Volunteers play a vital role at Hope’s Door New Beginning Center.  Each year, hundreds of people donate thousands of hours to help us provide safety, shelter, healing, and hope to families affected by domestic abuse.  COVID-19 has impacted how we are currently engaging our volunteers. Personal safety for our clients, staff and volunteers is a priority. We are limiting onsite volunteer opportunities at our outreach offices and emergency shelters in order to ensure this safety. Please see the current opportunities we have for volunteers listed below. 

Volunteer Opportunities

Virtual Volunteer Opportunities: 

  • Organize a donation drive of items from our urgent needs list
  • Create craft project kits with instructions for children in our shelter
  • Donate non-perishable items for our food pantries
