Volunteering at New Horizons

Domestic violence advocates come from all walks of life. You don’t need to be a survivor; all you need is an open heart, compassion, and empathy.

Our dedicated volunteer team is comprised of individuals, families, community groups, and domestic violence survivors. Together they create a warm, welcoming community of hope and empowerment within our walls.

We have a volunteer opportunity that will complement your unique skill set while enriching your life and the lives of our shelter and outreach clients.

Outreach Advocacy

Do you like public speaking and community outreach? As an outreach advocate volunteer, you will provide direct services to empower and support our clients. You will assist with program development efforts and support our prevention education efforts in the communities we serve. 

Shelter and crisis line support 

We need volunteers in our shelter to welcome clients, support them during their stay, and assist with information and referrals related to their goals. Volunteers also support callers on the 24-Hour Crisis Line, help maintain shelter needs and input data. Our greatest need at this time is for volunteers able to work evenings and weekends.

Office admin and donation center support 

Behind the scenes can be just as rewarding as a direct service role! You can volunteer with grant writing and research, donation coordination and distribution, event assistance, mailings, and graphic design projects, among other administrative duties. 

Maintenance and grounds caretaker

Would you be interested in helping keep our shelter safe, organized, and well-maintained? Volunteers are needed for cleaning, seasonal yard work, shoveling, household repairs, painting, grocery/supply shopping, and other shelter projects.

Share Your Talents

Do you have a unique talent that’s not on our list of volunteer opportunities? We’d love to hear from you! Our volunteers offer their expertise on a wide variety of topics, including legal advice, resume writing, and interviewing, crafting, and budgeting. We’ve even had volunteers bake cakes to celebrate clients’ birthdays while in the shelter.
