Make a Difference
Make a difference and help end domestic and sexual abuse by becoming a One SAFE Place volunteer today!
Monthly Volunteer Orientations are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month from 5:30-7:00 PM at the One SAFE Place Sierra Center Community Room.
Crisis Intervention- Navigators and Crisis Hotline Advocates are our first responders in supporting domestic and sexual abuse victims. The primary function of a Navigator is to assist clients in accessing services from on-site partners in our Sierra Center. Crisis Hotline Advocates work from home to offer counseling, support, and referral services from clients through a secure phone dispatch system. Volunteers are also called on by local hospitals and law enforcement to accompany victims. *certification required
Court Advocacy- Volunteers are needed to provide assistance to clients during the Family Court process, including court and mediation accompaniment. Individuals help our Legal Advocates prepare legal documents and provide court orientation. Legal background is a plus! *certification required
Education & Outreach- One SAFE Place interacts with the public at various community events, empowering youth and adults alike with information and education. Volunteers can assist with awareness events, facilitate resource booths at community gatherings, and distribute educational materials throughout Shasta County. Some advocacy may be needed as some fairs and events involve interacting with potential clients. *certification required
Residence Help- Volunteer assistance is needed with both certified and non-certified tasks.
Non-Certified: Volunteers can provide a variety of support services to clients, children, and One SAFE Place staff, including cleaning, laundry, dishes, cooking and help with meals, filing, and other day-to-day chores. We also have childcare needs. Individuals interested in yard work, general maintenance, and organization are always helpful in keeping the Residence functional.
Certified: Professional skills and personal experiences can be shared by facilitating educational classes for both adult and child residents in a group environment. Transportation of residents to and from appointments and meetings using provided agency vehicles is also needed.
Fundraising Events- Volunteers are needed at events to raise money for our meaningful cause. Those who enjoy working with local businesses to solicit donations, plan and execute events, and interact with the public to share about our organization are encouraged to lend their expertise.
Clerical Assistance- Good people skills–both in person and over the phone–are essential for volunteers in this area. Help is needed in filing, grant writing, newsletter editing, sorting donations, accounts payable, reception, appointment setting, and more. Basic computer skills in Microsoft Office programs is preferred.
One SAFE Place requires volunteers who work directly with clients to attend the 66-hour training course, accredited by the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) as outlined in Penal Code section 13835.10. This course is offered twice annually– During spring semester (January-May) at Shasta College and as an 8-week option (August-September) at One SAFE Place. While the course is a commitment of time and energy, at completion volunteers are certified as Crisis Intervention Advocates. A fee is changed for this course, but incentives and scholarships are available.
We have a special session with our next class beginning on April 11th!
