Become a Volunteer

 volunteerDuring the last year, Laurel House provided:

  • Support and services to over 1000 domestic violence victims and their children
  • Educated 4,032 high school students on teen dating violence
  • Training to 1,256 health care providers on how to assess and identify domestic violence
  • Provided 136 women and 92 children safe shelter
  • Trained over 350 law enforcement officers on domestic violence

It is no surprise that without our volunteers, Laurel House could not provide the life-saving servies that we do without them! However, as with everything - there comes a time when you much step back, and re-group. This summer is our time to re-group and re-structure the Volunteer Program. Therefore, we are not taking an volunteers at this time. If you are interested in volunteering with Laurel House at some point, please This email address is being protected from spambots.

All volunteers will be asked to complete an application and submit to both a criminal background check as well as a child abuse clearance. For those individuals who are interested in volunteering in a position in which you would work directly with our clients it is required that you complete a training course that is mandated by the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The training is offered at Laurel House several times throughout the year.

Volunteer opportunities also exist for those who you do not wish to work directly with clients. Some examples of non-direct volunteer opportunities are community education, donation drives, etc.
