Crisis Line (Must be 18 years of age)
Are you interested in helping domestic violence victims/survivors on an up close and personal level? We always need volunteers to assist with our 24 hour crisis line. This type of volunteering you can do right from your home or cell phone, as we can transfer the Crisis Line right to your phone. We train our volunteers on how to handle crisis calls and always have an Advocate available to assist. If you feel you want a volunteer experience that could involve direct phone contact with persons who are experiencing domestic violence, the Crisis Line may be for you. Volunteers take one or more nights per month (3-16 hours per night, based upon your availability) Contact our Volunteer Advocate, Erika @ 325-6489
Another place to volunteer is directly at our office. Do you like puttering around and fixing things? Maybe yard work is more your speed? Do you like to organize? paint? snow shovel? We always have different needs popping up. If you would like to volunteer to help keep our facility clean and welcoming we would love to hear from you! Contact our Executive Director, Chandra @ 608-325-6489.
Would you be interested in volunteering to help with our fundraisers each year? We need help preparing for and working at the fundraisers. Currently our two fundraisers are the yearly Mother’s Day Plant Sale and October’s Scavenger Hunt. Would you like to help make these events successful, or maybe you have an idea for a fundraiser. We are always looking for a good idea. Contact our Executive Director, Chandra @ 608-325-6489.
Would you be interested in volunteering to hold a seat in our Board of Directors? We are seeking individuals from within Green County. A not-for-profit board member has the critical responsibility to direct the organization toward achieving its mission. As a board member, you would have the opportunity to contribute your talent, expertise and dedication to a worthy cause. A Board Member should possess the time and dedication to assist Green Haven in continuing to be a strong and effective agency and help the Agency in planning our vision for the future. If you have the time and dedication we would love to talk to you about joining our board. Contact our Executive Director, Chandra @ 608-324-6489.
