How to be involved... volunteers3:

The Alliance Against Family Violence & Sexual Assault is committed to stopping domestic violence and sexual assault in our community. For over thirty years we have assisted those who have suffered from these crimes to reclaim their lives.

Some of our services include 24-Hour Hotline and Hospital Accompaniment Programs, Shelter for battered women and their children, Counseling services for victims and their families, and Prevention and Education Programs for youth, the general public and the professionals who come in contact with victims of these crimes. In addition, we work with the Courts, law enforcement agencies and with the District Attorney’s Office to provide support and assistance for those who are victimized and to hold the perpetrators of these crimes accountable.The Alliance needs your help in order to continue providing these services for our community.

Volunteers donate thousands of hours each year - with their help we can make every dollar stretch farther.  You too can help - volunteers are caring community members just like you.  Whether you want to help victims; work at the reception desk; perform maintenance and repair tasks; or help to raise dollars - we have a volunteer job for you.   

Before working with clients, volunteers must first complete two intensive training courses.  You can view our schedule of upcoming trainings or sign up for the next Domestic Violence training today!  Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Maria Mendez, via phone at 322-0931 to receive more information about our trainings. 

If you would like to work on a fundraiser, please call 322-9199, our Administrative Office.

For those who like to answer phones, perform maintenance and repair tasks, or have another talent and area of interest - call our Volunteer Coordinator, Maria Mendez, at 322-0931 to learn more about how you can help.
