Volunteer Opportunities

Many of the women and children served at Safe Harbor have faced unthinkable tragedies, abuse, and often find themselves in a deep place of darkness and hopelessness when first reaching out for help. The services provided through our multiple programs require committed volunteers who first love God and want to make a difference in the lives of others as we share Jesus and the hope only HE can bring! There are multiple areas of need at Safe Harbor. We offer opportunities with varied time commitments and skill sets.

For more information please contact Volunteer and Community Outreach Coordinator, Christie Clary.
