Volunteers are absolutely critical to our work at Women’s Support Services. Program volunteers complete a 20-hour certification process enabling them to work in a variety of positions:

  • Supporting our Family Violence Victim Advocate at court
  • Providing learning activities for children in pre-K and early elementary grades
  • Representing WSS at awareness-raising events
  • Providing office support
  • Supporting clients in shelter with transportation and other logistical support
  • Answering the hotline

Contact Linda Ciano, Director of Community Engagement, at lciano@wssdv.org for further information on becoming a program volunteer.

We also need volunteers for our primary fundraising event – Trade Secrets®. More than 230 community members help us bring this amazing event to life – raising a third of our operating budget in the process! Certification is not required to volunteer for Trade Secrets®.
