Volunteer for Peace

Make a difference by using your time and talent to be a volunteer at Sojourner Family Peace Center, contributing to our mission to transform lives impacted by domestic violence. We believe volunteers strengthen the agency as a whole and significantly expand our reach to the clients we serve!

Sojourner Family Peace Center has several programs that depend on both long-term and short-term volunteer commitments.

Short-term or one-day-only volunteer opportunities are for those who would like to donate their time on a less continual basis.

Volunteer Orientation
Our next Volunteer Orientation will be Tuesday, February 12, 2019 from 5:30 to 8:30 PM in the Family Peace Center. We’ll be covering Sojourner’s history, programs, and volunteer opportunities, and we’ll end with a Domestic Violence 101 session. Dinner is provided. Anyone who would like to attend can RSVP to Deja Taylor at 414-810-1825 or dejat@familypeacecenter.org. Can’t wait that long to get started?
