ATTENTION: Sanctuary for Families is committed to the safety of our clients, staff and volunteers. In an effort to minimize contact within our broader Sanctuary Community, we are currently refraining from on-boarding new volunteers and accepting in-kind donations. Please view our webpage here for a full updates on Sanctuary for Families response regarding COVID-19.

Volunteers are essential to our ability to provide high-quality personalized care to survivors of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and related forms of gender violence. Most volunteer opportunities take place Monday-Friday (typically between 10am-8pm) at one of Sanctuary’s locations in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens.

The most common volunteer opportunities at Sanctuary are listed below; however, other opportunities do exist on an as-needed basis.
