Become a Volunteer

Want to help? REACH volunteers bring creativity, energy and empathy to support the work of supporting survivors and creating community change. We offer short- and long-term volunteer opportunities, including direct service (hotline, shelter, legal advocacy, support group facilitation), fundraising, and community education.
