(See "A great way to show your support", below).
Used Appliances and Furniture: Must be in good working order and have a clean, new appearance. May require a few weeks to schedule a pick-up.
Christmas Family Adoption: We have many clients and families who need sponsors for Christmas each year. Please contact Kimberly Robertson at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (228)436-3809 if you or your group is interested in adopting one or more families for Christmas.
The Center is always in need of volunteers! We could use your help on any of our Volunteer Teams:
To see a description of our volunteer teams, check here or download one of our applications below. For volunteer inquiries, contact Charlotte Brown at email@example.com or call the Center at (228) 436-3809 (must be 18 yrs old to apply).
|GCWCFN Volunteer Application:||MS Word|
This document must be submitted by the Volunteer Applicant for the application process to begin. Some placements, such as our crisis line or sexual assault volunteers, may need to submit additional documentation or complete background checks before being assigned to duty. These documents will be provided by the Volunteer Coordinator only if needed.
Willing community members who are at least 21 years old may be trained to become sexual assault victim advocates. These special people make themselves available to be on call to visit victims of sexual assault in the hospital, provide support, and share information about available support services. If you are interested in becoming an SA Advocate, please contact Stephanie Piper at firstname.lastname@example.org or (228) 436-3809.
One great, fun way to help support our Center is to participate in our volunteer usher program. Through a cooperative agreement with IP Casino and Golden Nugget Casino, we provide volunteers to serve as ushers at their concerts, and they provide a financial donation for each show. We are always in need of volunteers. The work is easy and ushers get to see some great concerts for free! Watch our Events Calendar (in the sidebar) for upcoming opportunities, and contact Paul Ahlberg (email@example.com) for IP shows, or Dan Kazumura (firstname.lastname@example.org) for Golden Nugget shows, to sign up prior to the show. Must be 21 or over to participate.
Be An Advocate for Victims
Ending violence starts with confronting harmful attitudes in everyday situations and speaking up on behalf of victims. You can help be an advocate for victims by doing things such as:
Host A Training
Are you part of a civic group, church group, club or class? Can you bring together a group of interested friends? Contact us to have a speaker come talk to your group about domestic violence or sexual assault awareness and prevention. It's a great way to spread awareness and help us get the word out about the services available at our Center.
Join The No More Campaign
NoMore.org has a wealth of information, video PSAs, and graphics you can use to share information about stopping domestic violence and sexual assault.
Share and Retweet
Whenever we have an event, or we have an immediate, specific need (e.g., a family is moving out of shelter and needs beds, or we have several babies in residence and we've run out of diapers) - our quickest way to reach out for help is through social media. Following us, re-tweeting and sharing our posts goes a long way toward helping us get the word out.
