Volunteers at DASI provide a wide variety of services to assist victims of domestic and sexual violence and human trafficking. Volunteers enhance the work we do and are vital to our mission. Opportunities are available working directly with our participants and working to assist staff and the agency in general. Due to the sensitive nature of the work and to certain legal requirements, volunteers may need to complete specialized training before active participation.
Direct Service Volunteers
In order to work directly with survivors, completion of DASI’s sixty-hour training course (including a brief assessment interview), a volunteer application, a post-training interview and a criminal background check are required. A driver’s license background check and copy of current auto insurance coverage may also be required.
Direct service volunteer opportunities include:
To assist the staff and the agency in general, the application, interview and criminal background check (driver’s license check as needed), as well as three to ten hours of training are necessary. As a private, nonprofit agency, we are often short-staffed and we always need to stretch our funding as far as it can go. Volunteers help us raise funds, put on events, maintain our buildings, and assist in general service delivery in the following ways:
We always appreciate your ideas as well !!!
