Volunteer

The Rape Crisis Domestic Violence Safe Haven program of Appleseed offers various volunteer opportunities. Every year volunteers help us:

  • Respond to hotline calls
  • Provide support to victims and survivors
  • Advocate for victims and survivors in court, hospitals, and community settings

Our community volunteers are helping staff events, raise awareness, fundraise for Save Haven, and collect donations. Through the help of volunteers, Safe Haven is able to continue to offer free services, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Volunteering with Safe Haven is an opportunity to become an active part of ending violence in our community.  Volunteering is also a great experience that can help strengthen your resume. If you are interested in volunteering for the Safe Haven, please contact Kate Henderson, Volunteer Coordinator, at KScott@safehavenofashland.org or call 419-282-6097.

Volunteer Levels

 

Training

Volunteers are required to complete a free training course provided by Save Haven, depending on what level of volunteering they chose. Training sessions are offered several times throughout the year. Our 40-hour training is a very extensive training and topics can include the history of violence against women, trauma informed care, domestic violence, sexual assault, mental health, listening skills, and more.

To become a volunteer with Safe Haven, you must complete a background check prior to volunteering. Some levels of volunteering will require a working phone, email, and reliable transportation.
