We are always looking to grow our volunteer base. Based on your ability and schedule, there are many opportunities to support our programs, staff, and clients.

A few ideas:

  • support with clothing drives
  • help distribute Day One materials in the community
  • assist with organization and clerical support for special projects

The Helpline

We are always looking for more people to join our Helpline team! Volunteer advocates provide support, information, and referrals to survivors at hospitals and police stations throughout Rhode Island.
