Volunteering at SafeHaven

Interested in
becoming a volunteer?

  • 01

    The first step is to fill out a volunteer application and background check release form and return it to the Community Coordinator, Jeni Kearns, at jkearns@safehaventc.org.

  • 02

    After SafeHaven receives your application, we will reach out to schedule a face to face interview to learn more about your volunteer interests.

  • 03

    After the face to face interview and identifying if we are a good fit for each other, volunteers are required to attend SafeHaven's volunteer orientation, which includes Domestic Violence 101 and an orientation to the agency.

  • 04

    At the volunteer orientation, attendees will fill out a volunteer preference sheet based on the current volunteer openings.  Taking into account the face-to-face interview, volunteer preference sheet and needs of our programs, individuals will be placed in a volunteer role by the volunteer department.
