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.
