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

With a staff of approximately 20, the above would not be possible without the generous support and dedication of volunteers. Our volunteers work in the shelter, provide community education, help with fundraising events, prepare meals for residents, work in the administrative offices, and respond to hospitals and police departments to support victims of domestic violence. We have positions to meet every level of commitment and experience.

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.
