Are You Looking to Volunteer?

We’re always looking to grow our volunteer base — to more deeply connect with our community roots. Volunteer involvement is crucial to the success of our work, to our goal of crime reduction and less victimization. Almost everyone has skills relevant to our work and the best approach is to contact the office nearest you and speak with the Executive Director. You will find yourself in the company of people committed to the building of better, more resilient and compassionate, communities — people looking for ways to enrich the quality of life in their towns and cities through building the elements of community well-being.
