A New Day volunteers work hand-in-hand with staff to assist in providing safety, healing and dignity to survivors of sexual and relationship violence.  Becoming an A New Day Volunteer will give you the opportunity to touch people’s lives in a very profound and meaningful way.  The Advocates at a New Day change survivors' lives every day by:

  • Offering support and compassionate listening
  • Helping survivors learn important life skills
  • Providing support in hospital emergency rooms
  • Working with families in shelter to transition into healthy and independent lives
  • Showing children (and adults) that there are good people in the world who care about them
  • Answering the crisis line
  • Being a role model

Being A New Day volunteer not only makes a life-long difference to the people you help, but can make a difference in your life too! Our volunteers report that through their volunteer work they have:

  • Learned new skills
  • Become part of the community
  • Felt great about the work they do and about themselves
  • Made new friends
  • Become part of the solution!
