Volunteers and Interns serve a big role in our programs. We rely on volunteers/interns to help us deliver high quality, trauma informed programs and care to survivors of abuse.
Our program seeks students and individuals who are seeking to increase and enhance their experience in providing services to people who have experienced trauma.
Eligibility for our program:
Must be at least 18 years of age
Successfully complete the background process
Agree to work at least 16 hours per month
Agree to a one-year (for students this may be an academic year) commitment at the SAFE FJC.

Agree to follow the policies, procedures and operations manual for the FJC
Complete required 40 Domestic Violence Counselor Training

The SAFE Family Justice Center recognizes and appreciates that many survivors of domestic violence wish to give something back by volunteering in this area. We welcome all applications. However, for the health and safety of our volunteers, clients, and staff, we ask that anyone wishing to volunteer be out of a violent relationship for at least two years at the time of submitting their application.
