Volunteers can assist with administrative tasks, answering our crisis hotline, thrift store sorting & customer service, facilities maintenance, court accompaniment, the Suffolk County Fatherhood Initiative, and many more opportunities.
All volunteers must participate in orientation and training. For more information, contact Kathryn at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 631-329-4398. You can download and complete our Volunteer Application here.
