Review our list of open positions for volunteers and staff members.


One of the biggest and most important benefits people get from volunteering is the satisfaction of incorporating service into their lives and being able to make a difference in their community. The intangible benefits such as increased confidence, pride in the work, accomplishment, are all excellent reasons to serve. When we share our time and talents we make connections,  problem solve,   strengthen communities,  improve Lives,  and change our own lives. 


Separate from volunteering, our staff work right on the front line, directly with the women involved in our programs.  These paid positions allow you to collaborate with your colleagues to bring about real change for women seeking to enhance their lives.  Staff positions include generous compensation, health benefits, paid vacation and sick leave.
