Volunteer Program: Due to COVID-19, we are currently not offering General Volunteer opportunities until further notice. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT A VOLUNTEER APPLICATION. We sincerely apologize. You may request to be added to our Contact List. We will reach out once we are accepting volunteers again!


As we emerge from a year filled with uncertainty, immense pain and loss, we must look to the future with hope in our hearts. Many of us may be asking ourselves an important question as we prepare for the upcoming year. How can we make our communities safer, especially for those who have seen, experienced and have been impacted by the various forms of violence? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer. Making our communities safer for all will take many ideas, resources, perspectives and people like YOU. Activate your power by activating the power in others. It takes a village, and we can't do it without YOU.
