Independence House volunteers are specially trained to offer vital assistance to children, teens and adults who are survivors of, or have been affected by domestic and sexual violence.
Our devoted volunteers commit themselves with all of their hearts to the mission of Independence House by assisting in finding safety, healing and empowerment.
Independence House volunteers:
- Provide hotline coverage;
- Respond as medical and police accompaniments at Cape Cod and Falmouth Hospitals and all Cape Cod Police Departments for calls involving sexual violence;
- Offer civil legal advocacy at every District and Probate Courthouse on Cape Cod (Falmouth, Hyannis, Orleans);
- Are safe-home providers;
- Assist with child care for clients attending services at Independence House;
- Pickup, deliver, help stock and maintain the Independence House food pantry;
- Support community outreach programs;
- Aid in administrative support;
- Take part in committees that help fundraisers and produce events
Independence House volunteers are women and men of all ages and demographics who are appreciated not only by the staff and clients of Independence House but by the Cape Cod community in which we serve!
We have a few spots available in our next class beginning on January 7.
