We are always looking for volunteers. There is much to be done. You can answer hotline calls, help advocate for survivors when they have to go to court to file or modify a restraining order, help out with childcare at shelter, help tend the shelter garden, table with us at community events, protest with us at community rallies, or help out in the office.
Volunteering at EFC is a meaningful and rewarding endeavor, one that we prepare you well for with training and support. Anyone – staff or volunteer – who works with people who come to us for help must first be trained and supervised as a domestic violence/rape crisis counselor. This includes completing a 40-hour training in order to protect the confidentiality of our clients and ensure quality services. Elizabeth Freeman Center holds one to two 40-hour volunteer trainings annually.
For more information on volunteering or attending the next training, please contact Donna, our volunteer coordinator, by phone at (413) 499-2425 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All inquiries are welcome!
