Volunteer

DVSBF depends on volunteers to make great things happen! Here are some of the ways we can use your passion and talents:

  • Community Events – help at DVSBF booth for events like the Women’s Expo and Family Expo.
  • Fundraising Events – help at annual events like our golf tournament and the Ladies Afternoon Soiree.
  • Organizing and Projects – help us fill food boxes, collecting and sorting of donations, yard work and household projects like painting and cleaning.
  • Working with Survivors – work with women and children at the shelter, help answer the crisis line, or provide support at court.

Per state WAC (388-61A-0350), all DVSBF staff and volunteers must complete a minimum of 20 hours of initial basic training before providing any direct client services.
