Why Get Involved?

First Step relies heavily on the kindness and generosity of our volunteers to provide support and assistance to survivors of domestic and sexual violence. The gift of time is precious one, and our teams are trained to help provide that gift.

The mission of First Step’s Volunteer Program is to provide the community with opportunities to support First Step’s mission and increase our ability to deliver services at a higher capacity, standard, and efficiency than they do. First Step’s Volunteer Program aims to be diverse, inclusive, and includes individuals and groups who have a variety of skill sets, trainings, education, and experiences.

Whether it is through working with survivors and their children, gardening, maintenance, event planning, cleaning, organizing, offering advisory, or consulting, all of our volunteers' efforts and time are valuable and appreciated.

First Step volunteers are family!
