Your helping hands and caring heart can make a positive, lasting difference.

There are many great reasons to volunteer at the Eastern Shore Coalition Against Domestic Violence – if you have some free time; would like to learn new skills; are concerned about domestic violence or sexual assault in our community; enjoy meeting and working with others; or if you have a talent you want to share.

Our goal is to make your volunteer experience fulfilling and meaningful. We offer very flexible hours, comprehensive training, and a satisfying work environment. You can volunteer for one day or make a long term commitment. We have opportunities for those who want to directly assist survivors on their paths to freedom and safety and other opportunities to support our organization’s operations. We will help you find a volunteer role that suits your interests and schedule.
