We cannot do this work alone, and rely heavily on volunteers to help us support survivor and program needs. With a variety of programs supporting survivors there are many different ways to get involved with our mission.
Indirect Service volunteers donate their time completing administrative tasks such as shredding, organizing, or making copies. They also represent Turning Point at community events at information tables passing out information about our agency to assure that all survivors are aware of our free services. Indirect service volunteers attend a half day training to learn more about the agency mission, programs, and ways to help.
Direct Service volunteers work directly with survivors seeking services throughout the agency. They may answer the 24-hour hotline, provide Personal Protection Order assistance, help with childcare. etc. Direct service volunteers attend a comprehensive training to be equipped to provide support to survivors.
Volunteers are also an essential part of the operations of our Second Hand Rose resale shop. The store is always looking for dedicated volunteers to help accept donations, greet customers, along with a variety of other tasks.
