The Women’s Center could not develop its services without the invaluable assistance of its volunteers. They answer telephones, provide peer counseling, schedule appointments, register clients for support groups and workshops, maintain a lending library at the Women’s Center, and provide on-call advocacy services. They serve on the Board of Directors and the Guild, and provide support for special projects. Each volunteer who provides regular Front Desk support at the Women’s Center has received training in interpersonal and communication skills, office management techniques, dealing with crisis calls, and how to research services not provided by the Women’s Center.

Volunteers provide victim advocacy at the courthouse to women who are seeking an injunction for protection. Volunteers provide mentoring to housing clients, and budgeting information. Local attorneys volunteer their time to provide legal workshops entitled Legal Aspects of Separation and Divorce. These classes are held monthly and are open to the public.
