How You Can Help

Volunteer Today!

Volunteers are critical to Next Step and the work we do. Our volunteers work directly with victims and survivors of domestic abuse in many ways, tailored to the wishes and availability of the volunteer. Next Step fully trains all volunteers, no special experience is necessary. And volunteer time is set up by the volunteer, often in advance so each volunteer sets their own schedule.

Hotline Worker

You’ll be the first voice someone hears when she or he calls our 24-hour hotline.

Childcare Worker

play and work with children whose mothers attend our support groups.

Special Projects

Help with special events or projects that come up from time to time.


Learn about Next Step and ways to volunteer

Considering becoming a Next Step volunteer or intern? Curious about what we do? Come to one of our regularly scheduled orientations to learn about Next Step and the many ways you can join us in our efforts to help individuals and families impacted by domestic violence and to end the epidemic of abuse through education and social change.

Orientations happen every other month and are a great way to learn about Next Step. We will share information about current volunteer opportunities and annual events. And we want to hear about your expertise and experience, and how you might want to help. We encourage creativity and welcome new ideas.

Next Step offers great trainings and regular supervision for volunteers and interns. Join us and learn how you can make a big difference!
