Volunteers Make the Difference
 
Being a volunteer at the Barbara Kettle Gundlach Shelter can be a rewarding experience.  A volunteer at the shelter helps many residents and their children by being an empathetic support person.  Once our 16 hour volunteer training is completed, volunteers sign up for shifts that fit their schedule.  The schedule is made on a monthly basis with the volunteers selecting the shifts they can work.

Volunteers are also needed for childcare during support group.  This is a two hour commitment once a week.

Please call 337-5632 for more information about volunteer training.

 
 
October Is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
 

We will hold an event on
Monday, October 6th, 2014.

All the details will be made available soon.
 
Plan to join us and show your support in mourning victims,
celebrating survivors, and reaffirming our struggle
for a non-violent future.
