VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Safeline has many types of volunteer opportunities. Following is a brief description of some of them.

Hotline Volunteer - Answering Safeline hotline calls. We provide extensive training for hotline volunteers. By using available pagers, answering hotline calls is flexible and convenient, and you can safely and easily respond from your own home. When a volunteer is covering a hotline shift, Safeline staff are always available for backup with any questions or concerns.

Community Outreach - Several types of activity fall within community outreach. We are always trying to better inform our communities about Safeline, our resources and also about the issues of domestic and sexual violence. We frequently need help with distributing poster, brochures, etc. throughout our area, and also with setting up and staffing tables or displays at area fairs and various community events.

Clerical or Computer Work - We often need help in our office with various clerical functions such as copying or collating materials, stuffing or addressing envelopes, maintaining our website, etc.

Building Maintenance - it is very useful to have someone help us with cleaning, mowing or various types of yard work.

Fundraising - At various times, we do fundraising events such as our Annual Appeal, raffles, etc. We also need help gathering signatures on petitions for town appropriation requests or in having representatives who could provide information about Safeline at the annual Town Meetings.

We would love to talk with you further about volunteering! Please contact Judy at (802) 685-7900, ext. 307 or at the email connection below.
