The Lodge welcomes volunteers from diverse backgrounds and skills to enrich our shelter and outreach programs. All skill levels are welcome and volunteers work in all aspects of our programs including: clerical tasks, community education, outreach support, crisis intervention and our children’s program, and Purple Moose Camp. Please click here for a list of individual and group volunteer opportunities List of Opportunities. If you do not see the volunteer opportunity that interests you, let us know about your interests and skills.
All volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application, attend a one hour orientation and obtain a criminal background clearance which includes fingerprinting prior to becoming a volunteer. There is a $24.00 processing fee for the criminal background check and an additional $1.00 fee for online payment. Volunteers who wish to work with adults or children will also be scheduled for a 30-hour core competency training to prepare them to work with victims.
Once your application has been completed contact the volunteer coordinator for an upcoming volunteer orientation and core competency training if applicable. Pursuant to Florida Statute, please note that the shelter is a confidential location. Therefore, volunteer orientation and core competency training must be scheduled prior to visiting our location.
