Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Program at Healthy Families. It takes the involvement of concerned and dedicated individuals like you to make a difference in our community in responding to the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Through the Ben and Myrtle Walkling Memorial Trust we have hired a new volunteer coordinator, Pamela M. Wise comes to us with extensive experience as a Program Liaison in a healthcare setting and a love of people. She is looking to  orient potential volunteers to increase their understanding of Healthy Families of Clallam County, its clients, its services and the role and responsibilities of volunteers. There are many roles volunteers can take on to help strengthen the organization and carry out its mission including crisis line coverage, fundraising activities, court watch, babysitting, donation procurement, front desk coverage, health fairs and language interpretation. Pamela can be reached at (360) 452-3811.

The volunteer placement process for the Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Program has been designed to be an informative process for the applicant and staff to ensure the volunteers are clear about their commitment and that qualified candidates are carefully selected and placed into rewarding volunteer positions. The process includes this application, criminal background and reference checks, the CORE training, and is completed with a placement interview.
Please complete the attached application and criminal background check. Upon receiving your application and background check your application will be screened and any unclear information clarified. References will be checked and the background check will be processed. In the meantime, you will be notified of the next available training session(s). Upon successful completion of the CORE training you will be scheduled for a placement interview. All information is confidential.
