Would you consider joining our team?
Our Cameron shelter is in a state of critical need for individuals who enjoy serving and helping others. Our agency serves women and children who are survivors of domestic and sexual violence in our shelter. We are a non-profit grant funded program that relies on our volunteers to help us keep the shelter in operation; hours that volunteered help us also earn some of our funding match through our grants.
What does volunteering look like?
We utilize volunteers in whatever avenue you feel you can commit to. Some ways that we have utilized volunteers in the past includes answering our phones, leading craft projects, child care, transportation of clients to appointments, accepting donations, organizing activities, teaching new skills, leading support groups, writing thank you’s, organizing donations, etc… We are flexible and willing to use you in what avenue you can commit.
Our staff cannot leave site if we do not have assistance with volunteers or part time employees to cover the phones. This limits our ability to respond to crisis situations, get clients to appointments, and provide non-residential services.
Do you provide training?
Yes.. All our Staff are provided with 48 hours of domestic and sexual violence training. We also complete to background screens an all volunteers: A criminal background check through the highway patrol and a family care registry check.
