How You Can Help

Being a Volunteer

You can also donate your time by volunteering directly for our agency! We rely on the work of our tireless and committed volunteer core. They assist us in staffing our 24-hour crisis line, providing court advocacy, helping out at the offices, visiting schools, community outreach, and planning special events. If you are interested in one of our upcoming volunteer trainings, please complete the Volunteer Application Form or call our offices for more information 603-889-0858 or 603-672-9833.

Volunteer Training

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or intern for our agency, please complete the volunteer application form online and we will contact with you as soon as possible. It will take you three consecutive weekends, Friday nights and Saturdays, to accomplish the training. Volunteers are a vital part of our agency’s success – you can help by answering calls from your home for our 24-hour support line, working in our Nashua and Milford offices, helping plan fundraisers and special events, and doing education presentations at local schools, businesses, and civic organizations.

Raise Awareness

We sincerely appreciate your interest in wanting to volunteer your time or resources for our agency. There are many different ways in which you can help! One of the biggest ways that you can get involved is by educating yourself and others about domestic violence and sexual assault. By proclaiming yourself an ally to our agency, your word of mouth support may assist someone in crisis connecting with our services. You can provide community support by giving out our crisis line number, distributing our agency information at your workplace, and asking your doctors if they have our agency information at their offices. You can also request that a speaker from our agency visit your workplace, school, or community organization to talk about domestic violence and sexual assault issues.
