We are grateful for your help! Sheltering Wings has many volunteer opportunities for individuals or groups who want to help victims of domestic abuse. Your gift of time and talent helps us provide needed services. With your help, the ability to give hope and healing to our community is limitless.


If you have a desire to serve those in need, Sheltering Wings is just the place for you. To get started, please complete the volunteer application. All volunteers go through a two hour training orientation. If you are working directly with the women and children, we require a drug screen and background check.
