In the long-term; our volunteers work to build a society where all people can live their lives free of violence and fear.

SAFE Volunteers receive free training and support to do this work successfully – training certifications range from 4 hour training to a 32 hour comprehensive training. Due to the sensitive needs of our clients and the depth of our services SAFE requests a 6 month or longer commitment from its volunteers.
